Winged Victory

Since 1945 The Lasker Foundation has held an annual awards-ceremony to celebrate major contributions by scientists, clinicians, and public servants to health and medicine. These awards aim to encourage support for medical research through recognition of excellence.

The foundation adopted the ‘Winged Victory of Samothrace‘ statue as an historic symbol of triumph over affliction. In keeping with this tradition, every year Nature Medicine magazine publishes a supplement with the Winged Victory on the cover to promote the awards. The brief has always been to depict the statue in new and graphically novel styles.

Also included are details of underlying structural geometry.
