A plaster bust of Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty.

Aphrodite is classically believed to have been borne from the sea as a result of the castration of Ouranos, although Homer's Iliad casts her as the daughter of Zeus and Dione. Aphrodite played key roles in many of the Greek tales, most notoriously influencing the events which sparked the ten-year Trojan war.

This bust is inspired by two marble statues of Aphrodite, housed in the Met and the Getty Museums in the U.S., both of which are dated to around 250-200 BC. Symbols of the goddess, such as dolphins, doves, roses, scallop shells and grapes adorn the lower part of her form, and the inscription on the base reads “Aphrodite: Goddess of Love and Beauty.”

An enchanting home ornament fit for the gods.
