Crouching Aphrodite

Mid-IIcentury. White marble. Room 072

Roman copy of a crouching Aphrodite who originally had both arms raised to shake her long hair with her hands. The copy is based on a late Hellenistic original created circa 100 B. C. in Rhodes which, in turn, combines the figure of the famous Crouching Aphrodite by the sculptor Doidalsas of Bithynia (c. 250 B. C.) with a standing Aphrodite Anadyomene (rising from the waters) from the same period. The arms, head and right foot are a Baroque restorations.
