About

Venus Allegrain in bronze, reproduction of the original in the Department of Sculptures in the Louvre, France, 17th and 18th centuries.

This "beautiful, beautiful, sublime figure" captivated Diderot and his contemporaries. Instead of sculpting the idealized body of a goddess, Allegrain shows a woman in all her mortal realism. The fluidity of the contours, the feeling of fullness, the voluptuousness of her gesture, and the refinement of the hairstyle are eminently sensual.

Venus was the ancestor of the Roman people through her son, Aeneas, who survived the fall of Troy and fled to Italy.

Julius Caesar claimed her as his ancestor.The Romans adapted the myths and iconography of her Greek counterpart Aphrodite for Roman art and Latin literature. In the later classical tradition of the West, Venus became one of the most widely referenced deities of Greco-Roman mythology as the embodiment of love and sexuality.

Please note there can be slight differences between the color of the item you receive and the pictures on the website due to the handmade nature of the product. The important thing to note is that the patina is not a paint but a very thin conversion coat on the surface of the bronze.
