SAMOTHRACE WING BROOCH
This brooch is based on the goddess of Winged Victory of Samothrace's wing, the famous statue of the Louvre Museum, an unequalled masterpiece of Greek sculpture from the Hellenistic period.
This brooch is made according to the cannetille technique : a flattened metal wire turned into a helix.
