The Winged Victory of Samothrace
One of Chicago's finest pieces of reproduction ancient Greek art isn't locked away in a museum, it's on public display in the Loop. A copy of Winged Victory of Samothrace (circa 200 B.C.) is on display in the lobby at the Bank One Center. It faces a three-story high glass wall, letting thousands of people walking to work each day see the golden sculpture. It's a larger-than-life copy of the original which is kept in the Louvre in Paris.
