The art is one of the most celebrated pieces of sculpture, and it was created to honor Nike and a sea battle. The statue was discovered in the island of Samothrace and first published in 1863.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the statue is displayed in the the second art room, on the bottom right corner.

Authenticity[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, if the statue has bat wings instead of feathery wings, then it is a forgery.
