This beautiful sculpture by Charles Robinson Sykes (English, 1878-1950) is the familiar symbol used as the radiator mascot on Rolls-Royce motorcars.  Sykes was commissioned in 1910 to create this bronze sculpture.  He took his inspiration from the splendor and fluidity of the Nike of Samothrace which he visited often in the Louvre Museum in Paris.  Please click on the thumbnail images above to see additional views of this stunning artwork.  We apologize that, because of the highly reflective surface of the stainless steel, it is difficult to provide images here that show this sculpture in its full beauty.
 
We have cast Spirit of Ecstasy using 32 lbs. (15 kg) of the finest grade of stainless steel.  The stainless steel is high-polished for a spectacular finish that will maintain its beauty forever.  Mounted onto a black marble base, the entire sculpture stands 28" high by 12" wide by 16" deep (71 cm high x 30 cm wide x 41 cm deep).  The artist has signed "Charles Sykes" and "No. 28" in the stainless steel base next to the maiden's left foot.  The sculpture's base also carries our Art Bronze foundry seal and is stamped with its unique casting number.
 
This is a fine sculpture that meets the standards of the automobiles for which it was designed.  We guarantee your satisfaction.
