Venus — or Aphrodite as she was originally called by the Greeks — was a primordial creature, said to have been born out of an endless black night before the beginning of the world. Ancient Greek poets and myth-makers told this ghastly story of her origins. The earth goddess Gaia, sick of her eternal, joyless copulating with her husband-son, the sky god Ouranos sex which left Gaia permanently pregnant, their children trapped inside herpersuaded one of her other sons, Kronos, to take action.

Although this was the first female nude monumental statue ever created in Greek art, the question that must be approached is why Praxiteles decided to create art that had never been done before by any other artist, and what was the inspiration for this revelation.

One can look to many factors and characteristics of the goddess of love and beauty to examine the such choice Praxiteles made. The unusual birth of the goddess brings forth not only her natural lineage to the Earth but also to the Sea, Greek goddesses naked in tern gives reason why her cult ultimately identifies themselves with not only eroticism due to her sensual charms and ultimate power of procreation and sex, but also their dedication to the water and the bathing of the goddess as ritual.

This natural side of Aphrodite seem to fit to the natural nudity and water jug depicted in the statue. Also the more complex abilities and powers the goddess has, such as the power to harmonize a society, not just in the personal sphere but also the public and civic sphere, shows her dominance and exceptional power that would permeate through her self-conscious nude stance and aligns herself now with the dominant heroic nude males in statue, illustrating that women in statue could now be idealized in more than just the way of victims or property.

This assessment was based on the Knidian statue of the artist, although the ancient sources actually do not explicitly link the revolutionary development to the statue.

Himmelmann stating the Aphrodite of Knidos was the first time Aphrodite was shown naked is directed towards just monumental statue, for the goddess has been shown in many vase and fresco work, even miniature votive terracotta reliefs and statues. Depicted on vases and frescos, women in the nude, or in this case naked, were either rape victims or courtesans, not meant to be shown nude Greek goddesses naked a choice.

Himmelmann in his commentary discusses how in the Rape of Helen, Attic red figure lekythos from St. Because of the presence of Hermes,the women with thymiaterion and phiale can only be Aphrodite and not an unknown servant.

In early Greek art she is rendered as a beautiful woman, usually clothed. By the fourth century she is portrayed nude or nearly sothe idealization of womanhood in all her femininity; the sculpture Praxiteles was mainly responsible for establishing the type-sensuous in its soft curves and voluptuousness. A reasoning for Praxiteles deciding to create not just a dressed statue of Aphrodite but a nude one can be seen in the statues done just about a century before Aphrodite of Knidos was made for Greek goddesses naked city of Kos.

Commentators have examined the style, pose, and physical attributes emphasized on the three goddesses grouped together, including Greek goddesses naked, and have noticed not only the drapery on these deities and their ificance, but also how their presentation plays into their identities.

Hestia, the matronly guardian of hearth and home, may be seated on a household altar. The motherly Dione supports her voluptuous daughter Aphrodite, who reclines in her lap. The individual character of each goddess dictates her posture, dress, and physique. The long flowing lines of the folds of the mantles over the legs produce a continuous rhythmic effect and are so deeply carved that they create a profoundly dramatic sense of light and shade.

Here, too, drapery pressed up against the body barely conceals knees, thighs, and lower legs. This wet drapery illustrates the step closer to the nudity of the goddess of Aphrodite, without becoming nude. The flow of the drapery on the goddesses, the way it hangs on the breasts and clings on the hips, legs, and thighs, gives such an emphasis on the body without being as revealing as being nude.

Toward the right corner, the opulent figure of Aphrodite languishes in the lap of another woman, usually identified as her mother. Her pubic zone is indeed covered, but its precise location and vitality are indicated by the covering and undulating drapery folds. One breast is hardly cloaked, and the chiton slips off her shoulder. Can we assume that the sculptor was intent on obscuring the female body — or even placing any part of it off limits? In contrast, it is worth recalling how the human form is overpowered, hidden and obscured under excessive lines or bulky drapery in medieval sculpture as in much baroque sculpture as well.

Aphrodite having this power with her body with this material concludes that her nudity would withhold the power of the heroic nude by males to an equal level, maybe even a higher lever, not just because of her body, but also her character and her attributes. This is an origin why Praxiteles created the nude Aphrodite alongside the draped goddess; Aphrodite is not just the goddess of love and beauty, but her power and her purpose to ancient Greek society is discovered to be abundant and fruitful to her being the first female nude in monumental statue.
