Aphrodite ("risen from sea-foam") is the Greek goddess of love and beauty. She was also called Kypris or Cytherea after her alleged birth-places in Cyprus and Cythera, respectively. The island of Cythera was a center of her cult. Aphrodite was born of the sea foam nafter Cronus cut off Uranus' genitals and the elder god's blood and semen dropped on the sea, where they began to foam. She was associated with Hesperia and frequently accompanied by the Oreads, nymphs of the mountains. Aphrodite was associated with, and often depicted with dolphins, doves, swans, pomegranates and lime trees. Her Roman analogue is Venus. Comes with a hook in the back for easy wall hanging.


Made of cast stone. Cast stone is a type of gypsum cement whose properties are much different from plaster of paris which is what most sculpture shops use. Unlike plaster, which is soft, light and weak, cast stone is hard, heavy and strong. Cast stone feels like, and is heavy like a real stone would be, which can be experienced as soon you try to lift it.
