Bronze Roman sculpture depicting the bust of a Victory, with rounded wings standing out over her shoulders and a mantle covering her body. The right arm is folded over the chest, with the hand partly extended to support the mantle, while the left one falls, gently folded, to the waist. The face is raised, crowned by an elaborate hairstyle worked in great detail.

The technique of lost wax casting is a sculptural procedure using a mould made from a prototype of the piece to be worked, and this prototype is usually made from beeswax. This is covered with a thick layer of soft material, usually clay, which then solidifies. Once this has hardened it is put in a kiln where the wax inside melts and leaks out from expressly made holes in the clay. In its place molten metal is injected and this takes on the exact form of the mould. To remove the final piece the mould must be removed.

Notes:
The piece includes authenticity certificate.
The piece includes Spanish Export License (Passport for European Union) - If the piece is destined outside the European Union a substitution of the export permit should be requested. This process could take between 1 and 2 months.
