Figurative sculpture Aphrodite

"Aphrodite's Tears"

Aphrodite was the great Olympian goddess of pleasure, joy, beauty, love and procreation. She became the goddess Venus. The Roman telling of the story was that Adonis, Aphrodite's lover, was killed by a wild boar that he was hunting. As Aphrodite rose from the sea in grief she began to cry...everywhere a tear fell a white rose grew.
