Animal Crossing Wiki

The valiant statue (こうごうしいちょうこく, kougoushiichoukoku?, divine sculpture) is a piece of artwork appearing in New Leaf and can be collected by Happy Home Handbook in Happy Home Designer. In New Horizons, the sculpture can be donated to the museum and be added to the art gallery. As this sculpture can be bought from Jolly Redd's Treasure Trawler, players should keep in mind that they may be purchasing a forgery. In real life, it is known as the Winged Victory of Samothrace and dates back to ancient Greek times.

This statue was created in 190 BC, formerly known as the Hellenistic Period in Greece. The marble statue is currently being displayed in The Louvre, and is admired by thousands around the world. With such a powerful stance and magnificent wings, it is easy to tell that the goddess Nike is being depicted. Upon this very day, there is no rightful creator of this masterpiece, and the identity will most likely never be known.
