Description The carving shows Aphrodite, after a bath, arranging her hair, and is derived from a large-scale sculpture of the Greek period, of which countless versions in many materials are known. The head, left arm, and left foot are missing and the bone is split down the center. The back of the torso is not modeled, its surface formed merely by the hollow of the bone.
