Roman head of Aphrodite Anadyomene
Aphrodite Anadyomene means Aphrodite of the sea. She depicts the goddess of love, emerging from the sea where she has just bathed, wringing out her hair, the arms raised so that the nude figure is visible (rather than concealed by her purposefully positioned arms) inviting the gaze of the viewer.
