Aphrodite, c. 360-340 BCE., Cypriot production, Provenance of Amathonte (Cyprus), excavations of Ed. Paridant, Painted limestone painted. Musée du Cinquantenaire (Brussels, Belgium). Made with ReMake and ReCap Pro from Autodesk.

This feminine figure, with many jewels, holds a flower in her right hand and a bird, dove or pigeon, in her left hand. These motifs bring her closer to the bearers of offerings, The turreted crown, a motif from the Middle East, covered with a veil, however, designates it as a deity, The cult of Aphrodite was very developed on the island of Cyprus.
