Aphrodite, ca 360-340 BC J.-C., Cypriot production, Provenance of Amathonte (Cyprus), excavations of Ed. Paridant, Limestone painted. Musée du Cinquantenaire (Brussels, Belgium). Made with ReMake and ReCap Pro from Autodesk.
This feminine figure, with many jewels, holds a flower in her right hand and a bird, dove or pigeon, in her left hand. These motifs bring her closer to the bearers of offering, like the neighboring sculpture. The turreted crown, a motif from the Middle East, covered with a veil, however, designates it as a deity, Aphrodite, cult very developed on the island of Cyprus.
