A torso sculpted with Greek marble with large crystals, originally part of a figure of Aphrodite, who rests her weight on the right leg while bending the left forward. The goddess of love is naked in the upper part of the body, at least up to the navel, while the legs are covered by an articulated drapery that rolls up on the hips.

In this figure we can recognize a type of representation of Aphrodite with a drapery covering the legs. For example, see a statuette of Aphrodite found in Pergamum (Izmir Museum inv. 630: Arachne DAI 1999): and one in Dresden (Staatliche Kunstsammlungen, Skulpturensammlung, inv. Hm 318: Arachne DAI 5271) also with the leg left bent forward.
