Aphrodite, Roman Goddess of Love

Regular price $ 125.00 USD
Regular price Sale price $ 125.00 USD

This is a plaster bust inspired by two ancient Greek marble statues of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, currently housed in the Met and the Getty Museums in the U.S. These statues date back to around 250-200 BC. Adorned with symbols of the goddess such as dolphins, doves, roses, scallop shells, and grapes on her lower form, the bust bears the inscription “Aphrodite: Goddess of Love and Beauty.”

In Greek mythology, Aphrodite is traditionally believed to have emerged from the sea after the castration of Ouranos, though Homer's Iliad portrays her as the daughter of Zeus and Dione. Known for her pivotal role in various Greek myths, Aphrodite famously influenced the events leading to the decade-long Trojan War.

This enchanting home ornament captures the essence of a goddess, perfect for those who appreciate classical beauty and mythology.
