Countless masterpieces in the Louvre, such as the Nike, or Winged Victory of Samothrace, were saved from the Nazis in World War II.

The Winged Victory of Samothrace is widely considered to be one of the most exquisite sculptures in the entire world.

Unearthed in 1863 on the small, beautiful island of Samothrace in the northwest Aegean, it is one of the Louvre’s most visited sculptures. However, you can find a faithful replica of the sculpture on the island today.
