Antonio Lombardo - Venus Anadyomene Magnet

Antonio Lombardo (1458-1516)

This relief formed part of a cycle of carvings of mythological figures by Lombardo. The inscription on the base is the last pentameter of a passage in Ovid in which the poet describes a gem incised with the image of Venus rising from the sea "Naked Venus wrings spray from her hair". It was a signal to the learned viewer to recall the full passage to be found in the poet's work the Arts of Love.

It is made by Antonio Lombardo (ca. 1458 - ca. 1516) in Venice in the early 16th century.

Dimensions: 5.4 x 7.9 cm
