Athena Nike Adjusting Her Sandal

Athena Nike Adjusting Her Sandal, marble relief from the Temple of Athena Nike, Acropolis, Athens (now destroyed). 410-470 BCE. 1.07 m. Acropolis Museum, Athens.

One of my favorite pieces of erotic art. Intelligence, independent action, the beauty of her body, look at her feet. Her legs, her breasts, her fingers, her shoulder as the drapery falls.
