Aphrodite Drying Her Hair

Greek, late 1st century B.C.
Bronze with silver and enamel eyes

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