The embodiment of perfect feminine beaut became a model for many generations of artists in Greece and Rome. The Roman copy in the Hermitage collection goes back to an early Hellenistic original. Only the torso of the statue has survived; its forms convey the beauty and harmony of the mature female body. To meet the taste which prevailed in the 3rd century BC the Hellenistic sculptor made the proportions of the figure lighter and more slender and the lines of the body softer than in Praxiteles's work.
Displayed at the Museum für Abgüsse Klassischer Bildwerke in Munich. It is a museum of classical paintings and sculpture. It shows sculptures of Greek and Roman antiquity from the 7th century BC to the 5th century AD.
