This is a typical representation of the "crouching Aphrodite" type. Aphrodite is crouching with her hair raised in her hands. There was a now lost original that is preserved in multiple Hellenistic and Roman versions. A famous marble copy of the Roman imperial period is today in the Archaeological Museum of Rhodes, Greece. The Hellenistic original of the 3rd century BCE was loosely derived from the Cnidian Aphrodite by Praxiteles, a 4th century BCE sculptor.
