    Aphrodite large bust

    Aphrodite ("risen from sea-foam") is the Greek goddess of love and beauty. She was also called Kypris or Cytherea after her alleged birth-places in Cyprus and Cythera, respectively. The island of Cythera was a center of her cult. Aphrodite was born of the sea foam after Cronus cut off Uranus' genitals and the elder god's blood and semen dropped on the sea, where they began to foam. She was associated with Hesperia and frequently accompanied by the Oreads, nymphs of the mountains. Aphrodite was associated with, and often depicted with dolphins, doves, swans, pomegranates and lime trees. Her Roman analogue is Venus.
