"To be naked is to be oneself; to be nude is to be seen naked by others and yet not recognised for oneself. A nude has to be seen as an object in order to be a nude." - John Berger

 

Part of the British history museum’s permanent display, ‘Lely’s Venus’ is a copy of what is today called the ‘Crouching Venus’ type. These statues show Venus/Aphrodite attempting to cover her nakedness with her hands.
