19th Century Marble Figure of 'the Crouching Venus' on Pedestal

About

A large and impressive 19th century Italian hand carved white Carrara marble figure of the crouching Venus with octagonal base, set on a 19th century green marble circular pedestal fitted with octagonal top, circa 1870 Measures: Height 70" (177 cm) Width 22" ( 55 cm) Depth 22" (55 cm) The Crouching Venus is a Hellinistic model of Venus surprised at her bath. Venus crouches with her right knee close to the ground, turns her head to the right and, in most versions, reaches her right arm over to her left shoulder to cover her breasts. In Roman mythology, Venus was the goddess of love, sex, beauty, and fertility. She was the Roman counterpart to the Greek Aphrodite. The Uffizi Crouching Venus was moved from the Villa Medici in Rome to Florence in 1787. It was originally thought to be a copy of a statue by Diodalses and referred to by Pliny, but more recent scholars relate it to Pergamene sculptures, such as the Arrotino. Early commentators considered the subject to be the Birth of Venus but later the goddess was generally thought to be bathing.
