We discussed a lot the date of this colossal statue found on the island of Samothrace. She(it) was raised(brought up) near the sanctuary of Cabires, defenders of the sailors, to commemorate a victory of the fleet of Rhodes; gone(taken) up on l? Before of a galley(bad adventure), she announced this success, the opened right hand.
The extraordinary virtuosity of the drape creates the power of the work: the garment stuck on the breast underlines in transparency the splendidly bent body; folds wave and frisonnent on all the left-hand side of the goddess then disappear to model the thigh, which gives rhythm to the moose(run-up) of the body, and spread(display,deploy) in a wide dragnet floating behind.
So this victory in wings majestic.
