**Originally Listed at $500**

Greek, Hellenistic, ca. 3rd century BCE. Carved in the round, a petite marble head of a female, perhaps Aphrodite, the goddess of love, beauty, and procreation, depicted with classic carved facial features and a wavy pulled back hairdo. Truly life-like, despite the goddess' mythical status, this naturalistic visage demonstrates that the sculptor was virtuosic in his ability to bring marble to life! Mounted on a wood block base. Size: .875" W x 1.25" H (2.2 cm x 3.2 cm); 2.375" H (6 cm) on stand

Provenance: private New Jersey USA collection, acquired over twenty years ago
