Venus Anadyomene with Eros
Venus Anadyomene with Eros Roman Empire, c. 1st century A.D. Nude female figure of Aphrodite Anadyomene arranging her long hair, based on a Hellenistic prototype. The goddess of love and beauty, is shown drying herself after being born full-grown from the sea. In Greek the theme is entitled "Aphrodite Anadyomene," and the birth was thought to have taken place off the coast of Cyprus. She stands on her own pedestal whit eros, her left hip resting against a support. This composition could also be interpreted as Aphrodite emerging from her bath.
