Aphrodite is an ancient Greek goddess associated with love, beauty, pleasure, passion, procreation, beauty, desire, sex, fertility, prosperity and victory. She is also known by her roman name Venus. Her name derives from the Greek word aphrós (ἀφρός) sea-foam, interpreting the name as risen from the foam. According to Greek Mythology, Aphrodite was born in Paphos, on the island of Chyprus, when Cronus severed Unanus’s genitalia and threw them into the sea. The foam from Uranus’s genitals gave rise to Aphrodite. The goddess was married to Hephaestus, the god of fire blacksmiths and metalworking but as she was a very beautiful and desirable woman she was frequently unfaithful to him and had many lovers. Myrtles, roses, doves, sparrows, and swans are Aphrodite's most prominent symbols. 

The beautiful goddess has inspired many artists across the ages. Aphrodite has been featured in art as a symbol of female beauty and has been depicted numerous times in sculptures, pottery and paintings. 

This representation of Aphrodite, laying on a couch, mostly known as Venus Victrix, is inspired by the neo-Classical portrait sculpture made by the Italian sculptor Antonio Canova in the early 19th century. The original sculpture is currently on permanent display at Galleria Borghese in Rome.
