Description

A beautiful marble sculpture of Aphrodite in the Museums collection was made in Imperial Rome (1st or 2nd century A.D.) as a copy of a Greek statue of the third or second century B.C. In this work, the goddess of love is shown as though surprised at her bath. Originally, her arms reached forward to shield her body in a gesture that both concealed and accentuated her sexuality. Our beautiful reproduction of the Museums Aphrodite was created with a combination of three-dimensional imaging and traditional sculpture techniques.

Cast marble. Hand patinated. 16 3/4''H x 4 3/8''W x 4 3/8''D, including base.

Art History

Statues of the nude Aphrodite proliferated during the Hellenistic period. To some degree they were all inspired by the Aphrodite of Knidos, created in the fourth century B.C. by the famous Greek sculptor, Praxiteles. That statue, the first major Greek work to show the goddess without clothing, was celebrated throughout antiquity.
