Aphrodites, made by PopqueeN were created under the influence of the covid situation. They reflect the degree of impact of the pandemic on the global community. This madness lasted too long to be forgotten and affected too many areas of life to bypass antiquity. In her works, PopqueeN imprints the pandemic on the canvas of world history, equating it with the destruction of Pompeii or the Trojan War.

Description

Magnificent Aphrodite in the rays of orange and blue with a neon outline. The beauty is covered with a respirator. On a carpet of fish.

The Venus de Milo (/də ˈml, də ˈml/ də MY-loh, də MEE-lohAncient GreekἈφροδίτη τῆς ΜήλουromanizedAphrodítē tēs Mḗlou) is an ancient Greek sculpture that was created during the Hellenistic period, sometime between 150 and 125 BC. It is one of the most famous works of ancient Greek sculpture, having been prominently displayed at the Louvre Museum since shortly after the statue was rediscovered on the island of MilosGreece, in 1820.

The Venus de Milo is believed to depict Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, whose Roman counterpart was Venus. The sculpture is sometimes called the Aphrodite de Milos, due to the imprecision of naming the Greek sculpture after a Roman deity (Venus). Some scholars theorize that the statue actually represents the sea-goddess Amphitrite, who was venerated on the island in which the statue was found. The work was originally attributed to the 4th century BC Athenian sculptor Praxiteles, but, based upon an inscription on its plinth, it is now widely agreed that the statue was created later, and instead is the work of Alexandros of Antioch.

Made of Parian marble, the statue is larger than life size, standing 204 cm (6 ft 8 in) high. The statue is missing both arms, with part of one arm, as well as the original plinth, being lost after the statue’s rediscovery.

Description

The Venus de Milo is a 204 cm (6 ft 8 in) tall Parian marble statue of a Greek goddess, most likely Aphrodite, depicted half-clothed with a bare torso. The statue originally would have had two arms, two feet, both earlobes intact and a plinth. There is a filled hole below her right breast that originally contained a metal tenon that would have supported the separately carved right arm. Without arms, it is unclear what the statue originally looked like, but textile archeologist Elizabeth Wayland Barber notes that the posture of Venus de Milo suggests that she may have been hand spinning.
