Cowering Aphrodite

‘The pernicious trap for a soul’ warned bishop Eusebius of the goddess of love seducing to unchristian practices. For her and the Bithynian King Nicomedes’s I sake Doidalses created this variant: with her head turned to the side, she squats to pour herself with water after a sweet night of love. The triangular composition is also a refined embodiment of her sacred initials, the Phoenician-Greek A of Astarte-Aphrodite._x000D_

Original: Vatican Museum, Rome. Hellenistic, 3rd cent. BC; Roman copy after Doidalses, marble._x000D_
