3D model description

This head of Aphrodite belongs to the statuary type known by a famous replica kept at the Capitoline Museum in Rome. The decorative richness of the hair is a treatment referrign to the third or second centuries BC which is the likely date that Roman copies of the original Greek sculpture would've been made.

The head has been detached from the Capitoline Aphrodite (99.350). The nose, the lower lip, and the end of the chin have been restored. The surfaces are slightly damaged and somewhat rubbed off, in post-Antique times.

The hair drawn back above the sides of the face and the shape of the face itself bear considerable resemblance to the Capitoline Aphrodite; the center of the topknot lacks the big “Herakles knot,” and the locks of hair falling down to the shoulders have been reduced to one smallish curl on the right side of the neck.
