A very large and impressive terracotta figure of Aphrodites.

She is depicted as a beautiful and voluptious deity, completely naked, bending her right knee, thus twisting her body slightly. Her hands are held up holding on to a couple of bands that possibly would have held a textile veil in place. She is wearing a large snake-ring jevellery bracelet on her right thigh.

Her elaborate headdress is in the style of the court, during the Severan period, late 2nd. century-early 3rd. century AD, at the time of the Emperor Septimius Severus.

Size: c. 36 cm. in height.

Condition: Superb for the large and fragile type!. Fully intact, with hairline repair to her lower right leg, othervise perfect. The figure has it's original white pigment preserved!

Ex. Private Collection, aquired before 1980.
