Roman terracotta figurine of Aphrodite, 100-200 A.D.

DESCRIPTION
The ancient Romans were great sculptors, from pictorial representations, stelae, niches. The sculpture in front of us represents the goddess Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty and love. During the I-II centuries A.D. the cult of Aphrodite spread as a Hellenized form of Isis or Astarte. These female figurines are associated with fertility, at a time when the moment of conception and childbirth were somewhat dangerous. This piece is collected, with the breast and the feminine sexual features marked.
