Overall: 50.9 x 26.8 cm (20 1/16 x 10 9/16 in.)
Gift of Mrs. John Huntington 1920.174
Although the original subject of this ancient Roman statue fragment is unknown, the cut stone at the back of its base indicates that the statue rested on a ledge, probably incorporated into a larger sculptural group. The nude upper body and relaxed pose suggest an alluring mythical woman, like Venus or a nymph, a beautiful female spirit that embodies elements of nature such as water, woods, or mountains.
