TANAGRA GREEK FIGURE OF EROS, ca. 3rd-2nd century BC. The young God of Love depicted naked in an animated pose, his right leg forward and hands outstretched, head turned to the left with a mischievous smile. 5 inches. Repair. Remains of red pigment on the hair and white on the wings. A wonderful example of the Hellenistic genius for capturing naturalistic poses portraying the human body in action.
