Visiting this Hellenistic Greek bronze and having the room to myself for half an hour was a dream come true. Located in Malibu, CA, the Victorious Youth is dated from between 300 and 100 BCE, and may be the only original extant sculpture by Lysippos. This video barely communicates the overwhelming feeling of seeing this majestic and historic figure in person. The Victorious Youth's freakishly stylistic yet realistic hands alone deserve their own museum.

A decent summary of this figure's complex rediscovery and true ownership fiasco can be found, of course, at Wikipedia:
