Victory Angel

This exquisite head comes from the winged figure supporting the lectern of the Arts and Crafts movement Church of the Holy trinity, Sloane Square, London. The angel holds aloft a laurel wreath, symbol of victory in Greco-Roman paganism. The winged Nike, who crowned the victor in contests of arms, athletics, or poetry was the prototype of the depiction of the angel in Christian art. The purity of form and feature typical of the pre-Raphaelite depiction of women is captured in this elegant sculpture. White Marble. English, 19th century. 9.75 x 4.25 x 6.5 inches
