Title

100.KZ.11 Aphrodite Kallipygos Statuette (MODEL)

Description

This is a 3D model of a Neoclassical statuette, which is a rendition of an ancient marble statue in the National Archaeological Museum of Naples. It displays a woman (the goddess Aphrodite or a mortal?) partially draped in her robes. This composition follows a statue type called the “Aphrodite Kallipygos” (Callipygian Venus). This modern name came from the Greek words kallos (beauty) and pyge (buttocks). The type's namesake statue dates from the 1st c. BCE. It was recovered in the 16th c. missing its head.
