Aphrodite (?)


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The short, stubby proportions of this figure relate it to a number of textile designs. The female figure with a flowing drapery is probably intended to be Aphrodite. The edges are broken on all but the left side, and there are three holes for attachment, indicating that it was probably an inlay for furniture.
