A Hellenistic terracotta statue of a seated Aphrodite. The goddess is shown seated on rocky outcrop, with a himation draped across her legs, she wears a crown with her hair tired back. Beautifully expressive the work embodies the goddess’ attributes. These finely moulded figures, often highly decorated, rose in popularity during the 4th and 3rd centuries B.C. Common themes include fashionable women, gods and goddesses, heroic athletes, and bacchanalian merriment.
