Object Description

The Venus de’ Medici or Medici Venus is a 1.62.5 m (64 in) tall Hellenistic marble sculpture depicting the Greek goddess of love Aphrodite.
After the original Greek sculpture, following the type of the Aphrodite of Knidos, which would have been made by a sculptor in the immediate Praxitelean tradition, perhaps at the end of the century.
The statue depicts the goddess in a fugitive, momentary pose, as if surprised in the act of emerging from the sea, to which the dolphin at her feet alludes.
