The Winged Victory of Samothrace, 200-190 BCE, marble, Louvre, Paris

Please report on one sculpture made between 2000 BCE and 100 BCE. The work can, for instance, be an Egyptian, Greek, Buddhist, Roman or Native American sculpture. Your report should be at least 400 words, and should include these numbered sections:

1. Image: Post an image or link to your chosen work, with the MLA citation and URL to the source.

2. Material Data: Name the artist/designer (if known), date(s), current location or museum, materials used and size. Note its use(s) and any special production techniques utilized.

3. Formal Analysis: Describe your image according using at least four (4) of these categories: Line, Shape and Form, Space, Texture, Value and Light, Color, and Implied Movement (Time), Repetition, Variety, Rhythm, Balance, Compositional Unity, Emphasis, Economy, and/or Proportion. Since this work is in three dimensions, make sure to look at images of the same work from different angles.

4. [NEW] Iconographical Analysis: This section will require research beyond your readings. Examine the work that you chose and discuss its symbolism beyond its “natural subject matter”. That is, first note exactly what you see depicted (the natural subject matter). Then, tell us what that subject matter means symbolically, within its own time, history, myth and culture. Try to relate the symbolism to the myths, philosophy, religion or ideas within its culture and time.
