Callipygian Venus Grand Garden Statue
After Hellenistic original Venus Kallipygos Sculpture, National Archaeologial 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" and was included amongst other such artworks in a secret cabinet when relocated to Naples in 1802.
