“‘Victory,’ the graceful figure of a nude girl, proud of her nudity as of her triumph, stands erect upon a shield. Pure in conception, it is surely carried too far in its realistic modeling, yet it bears witness to the accomplishment and knowledge of the artist.” — Spielmann

In the reduced-size version, Victory has a small winged figure in her left hand rather than a sceprte with the figure on the top.
