Product Description

"Perhaps the most perfect combination of grandeur and beauty in the female form."—Guide to the Crystal Palace, 1858

This pendant is an extremely accurate 3D scanned, 3D printed, and hand-cast reduction of the head and hair of Venus de Milo, one of the most famous works of ancient Greek sculpture. It dates from between 130 and 100 BC, and depicts Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. It is one of the Louvre's most celebrated pieces.

In 2013 I 3D scanned an extremely high-fidelity plaster cast of Venus that was molded directly from the original in 1850 by the Louvre's own studio. I’ve now prepared the resulting 3D data—the first of its kind—for 3D printing wax patterns which are then hand cast in a variety of precious and semi-precious metals in the traditional lost-wax casting method.

The 2,100 year old likeness of the goddess is now wearable as a pendant, in an alloy of bronze and stainless steel.
