The beauty of Aphrodite running


The goddess of love running and looking to the right and to the left……







Aphrodite, bronze, c. 150-100 B.C., with light interference in the second photograph.  The first from the website of the  Metropolitan Museum of Art


The museum says that this is a variant of the 4th century BC Aprhodite of Knidos, of Parian marble, an over-sized life work, the most famous made by Praxiteles, in the ‘unconciously and glorious heroic nudity’ manner natural to the gods.
