Features and remarks

Here you have the opportunity to add a striking piece to your collection of Paul Wunderlich's works.

The bronze relief, issued in 1979 in a limited edition of 900 copies, was produced using the sand casting process. The work has a dark brown, matt shimmering patina. Wunderlich's signature is punched into the bronze at the bottom right.

Aphrodite, known as Venus in Roman, was the goddess of love, beauty and sensual desire to the ancient Greeks. The daughter of Uranus or Zeus is also called the "foam-born" because she is said to have risen from the sea. Thus, she is often depicted with the attribute of the shell.

Wunderlich shows the female goddess as a torso sensuously shaped by veils and whose pubis is covered by a shell. Here, the artist congenially shows how erotic charms are created precisely through skilful concealment and how the artist manages to stage lightness, even though the material (here bronze) is anything but light.
