The posture is classic and faithful to the Greek tradition; she is in position
frontal resting on his right leg. The contrapposto generates a subtle dynamism. The anatomical treatment is fine and attentive to details, the marble realistically renders the modeling of the flesh. These elements contribute to the idealized naturalism of this female figure. The representation of female nudity has a history that begins with Praxiteles' Aphrodite of Cnidus in the 4th century BC. This sculpture disappeared in Antiquity, but nevertheless it served as a model or inspiration for many Hellenistic and then Roman sculptors.
