Variant of a Greek work of the 3rd or 2nd century B.C.
Aphrodite was represented bending down to remove the sandal from her raised left foot. Her outstretched left arm probably held a small figure of Eros, who reached over to her breast. Many versions of this small-scale statue type exist. It was probably a popular votive offering in the Hellenistic period, and it was widely used as decoration in Roman villas.
