A near life size carved marble figure of the Crouching Venus. This late 19th century copy of the iconic Hellenistic original bases its form on the crouching Venus on permanent display at the British Museum. It depicts the Goddess Venus at her bath, startled and shielding her nudity.
Italian in origin, this statue would likely have been made for a wealthy buyer enjoying their Grand Tour in Italy.

Italian, c.1890.

Notes: The subject of the Crouching Venus was explored by various sculptors in the Roman period, based on the Hellenistic statue of the same subject attributed to Doidalsas (200-100 B.C.)
