Goddess APHRODITE Venus Nude Naked Female Figure Cast Marble Statue Sculpture 12 inches
Aphrodite and Her Famous Nudity - HeritageDaily - Archaeology News
Although this was the first female nude monumental statue ever created in Greek art, the question that must be approached is why Praxiteles decided to create art that had never been done before by any other artist, and what was the inspiration for this revelation. One can look to many factors and characteristics of the goddess of love and beauty to examine the such choice Praxiteles made. The unusual birth of the goddess brings forth not only her natural lineage to the Earth but also to the Sea, and in tern gives reason why her cult ultimately identifies themselves with not only eroticism due to her sensual charms and ultimate power of procreation and sex, but also their dedication to the water and the bathing of the goddess as ritual. This natural side of Aphrodite seem to fit to the natural nudity and water jug depicted in the statue.

It is one of the first life-sized representations of the nude female form in Greek history, displaying an alternative idea to male heroic nudity. Praxiteles' Aphrodite is shown nude, reaching for a bath towel while covering her pubis, which, in turn leaves her breasts exposed. Up until this point, Greek sculpture had been dominated by male nude figures. The original Greek sculpture is no longer in existence; however, many Roman copies survive of this influential work of art.
