Description
Ancient goddess of love, Venus appears before us, a beautiful bronze statuette created by a skilled Roman artist. One of the twelve Olympians, Venus (known to the Greeks as Aphrodite) was one of the most celebrated deities of the ancients, known as the goddess of beauty, mother of love, queen of laughter, mistress of the graces and of pleasures, patroness of courtesans. Here we see her demurely covering her femininity with gracefully long arms and large hands, sculptural proportions that hearken back to a Late Greek canon. With her delicate body curves and elaborate coiffure that includes soft curls falling gently upon her shoulders, this bronze Venus clearly demonstrates the Roman artist's sensitivity to the human form and a skillful ability to translate that ethereal beauty into a timeless work of art. - (FZ.302)
