Aphrodite of Rhodes

Here are a couple of images of a famous crouching Aphrodite from the Greek island of Rhodes and a recent painting based on it. The images are from the Time. Inc site which announces that they may be used for non-commercial purposes. The sculpture photos appear to be from old (1936) pictures made by Alinari, the venerable Italian art image resource.
