Callipygian Venus Gallery Statue
After the Hellenistic original Venus Kallipygos, National Archaeological Museum, Naples
Venus, thought to be more beautiful than any mortal woman, demurely admires her reflection in this sculpture called “Callipygian,” meaning “of the beautiful buttocks.” Although the late Hellenistic original once stood at the center of a pool in Nero’s Domus Aurea in Rome, it was considered “dangerously erotic&rdquot; and was included amongst other such artworks in a secret cabinet when relocated to Naples in 1802. This designer resin gallery version is cast directly from a 19th-century antique.

When I was in Italy, I saw this piece in all the gift stores. When I got back my sister Sophia told me about your classic collection. I am glad I purchased this version from Toscano, it is wonderful. February 25, 2011
