Aphrodite Kallipygos Raising Peplos Greek Statue 15.5HPN# G-040SM
Aphrodite Kallipygos Raising Peplos is a type of nude female statue from the Late Greek Hellenistic era which translates as "Aphrodite of the Beautiful Bottom" (also known as Callipygian Venus or Venus Kallipygos). It depicts a woman raising her peplos to reveal her hips and buttocks. As she makes this gesture, she turns and looks over her shoulder to take a look. The Goddess of Love invites the viewer in to gaze at her and thus invokes her powers of attraction and desire. As part of the Hellenistic era, it is a further example of how inventive the sculptors were at using gesture to add naturalism to their subjects.
