Visage Captured

Antonio Canova, Paolina Borghese as Venus Victorious, 1804-08, white marble, 160 x 192 cm (Galleria Borghese, Rome)

The model lounged upon the pillowed couch. Her pose was natural, and yet alluring.  Her focused gaze drew any observer to either follow her stare, or to latch onto her fine feminine visage.  She truly had the face of an angel.
