Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love. Here she is shown drawing back her long locks to reveal the graceful lines of her neck. Beside her is a classic Greek pillar and a small vessel brimming with water to the point of overflowing. Aphrodite is known to incite feelings of love and lust wherever she goes. She is a contender in the story of the Golden Apples, when Paris chooses her as the fairest of the three goddesses (the others were Hera and Athena) and Aphrodite decides to "reward" him for giving her the Golden Apple (the prototype of most modern awards) by giving him the love of Helen of Troy, something of a mixed blessing that led to the Trojan War. This is a cold-cast resin statue measuring 11 1/4" tall, with a white finish.
