Afroditi // Venus of Soli


Hellinistic and Roman Period 310 BC - 330 AD ​


This figure showcases a remarkable artefact from the ancient city of Soli in Cyprus - the Statuette of Aphrodite. Dating back to the 1st century BC, this exquisite statue is a testament to the rich cultural heritage of Cyprus. Standing tall and proud Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, is depicted in all her divine glory.


The original statuette portrays a female figure with delicate features and an air of elegance. Her nakedness symbolizes purity and vulnerability while also emphasizing her status as a deity.

It stands as a reminder of how art can transcend time, allowing us to glimpse into past civilizations' beliefs and values. With its meticulous attention to detail, this figure invites us on a visual journey through history – one that celebrates both human creativity and spiritual devotion.
