Squatting Aphrodite. The Casting Workshop at the Louvre Museum Réunion des Musées Nationaux
Once the way was opened by 4th century artists, especially by the Athenian Praxiteles who was the first who dared to represent naked goddesses, Hellenistic art in turn produced innumerable naked Aphrodites.

But while Praxiteles sought to achieve ideal beauty, Hellenistic art, with its wider clientele, concentrated on satisfying a taste for realism and refined sensuality.
However, the grace and freshness of this crouching Aphrodite is worth noting. The elegant pose and harmonious volumes reveal a sense of balance and a rhythm.
