Venus de' Medici in resin

Venus de' Medici in resin



Faithful 1:1 resin with patina copy of the Venus de' Medici, an original Hellenistic Greek marble statue sculpted by Cleomenes of Apollodorus, dating back to the end of the 1st century BC. and preserved in the Tribune of the Uffizi Gallery. 

The statue, a Venus pudica, is inspired by Praxiteles' Cnidian Aphrodite. The statue arrived in Rome at an unspecified time in antiquity and perhaps decorated Hadrian's Villa in Tivoli. In the Renaissance it was probably purchased by the then Cardinal Ferdinando de' Medici, to be exhibited at Villa Medici. In 1677 it was brought to Florence by Cosimo III who placed it in the Uffizi Tribune. Since then it has occupied a place of privilege in the gallery's collection of ancient statues.

Symbol of ancient beauty in the neoclassical period, it was admired by Napoleon, who specifically asked to see it during his brief stay in the city in 1796.

It is also possible to produce this statue in white resin.
