This signed exhibit 'Spirit of Ecstasy' also known as the sculpture 'Emily' is one of the best known figures of the automobile history.  'Spirit of Ecstasy' is known as the radiator mascot of the Rolls-Royce. The original of Spirit of Ecstasy was made after an image of Nike, the Greek goddess of Victory.

The popular radiator mascot Spirit of Ecstasy in this version here was made after the idea of the sculptor Sykes. The only reason Spirit of Ecstasy was once created was because of a great idea of the British Lord Montagu, who wanted a radiator mascot for his Rolls-Royce. Therefore he ordered a little sculpture from the sculptor Sykes. Sykes accepted the deal and started to create a radiator mascot inspired by the goddess Nike and by the British woman Miss Eleanor Velasco Thornton(1881- 1951), who was his model for this work.

Later, the idea of radiator mascots got so popular that other companies adopted the idea. Even today the famous figure Spirit of Ecstasy still decorates every Rolls-Royce.

 

On February 6, 1911 a first version of Emily was affixed on a Rolls-Royce. The exhibit shown here was affixed on a solid marble base and is a lightly abstracted recast.
