Aphrodite Drying Her Hair


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This statuette is based on a famous work that did not survive antiquity. The goddess rises from the sea as she is born from the froth of the water's surface and raises her arms to wring the water from her hair. In contrast with the Cnidian Aphrodite, this goddess appears comfortable with her nudity.
