The goddess of love rises nude out of the sea which gave her birth, wringing the sea water from her hair. The question of whether the statuette was intentionally finished at thigh level or originally part of a complete figure remains open. This marble Venus is one of more than 1,400 artifacts that are part of a suite of galleries, Worlds Intertwined: Etruscans, Greeks, and Romans, at the Penn Museum.
