Vintage copper plaque of " The Rock of Romios, Birthplace of Venus " featuring the beautiful goddess by the sea shore, standing naked with her feet in water. The island of Cyprus is embossed on a corner and reads " Handmade Adonis Cyprus ". The Romios stone ( Petra tou romiou, or the Rock of the Greek ), beach and ripples are also depicted in low relief.

Picture measures 10'' x 7'' (26 x 18 cm) and weighs 13.7 oz (405 gr).
It is 1/3'' thick with the backing (0.7 cm).

The thin copper sheet with the composition has a rigid woody material (possibly pressed fiberboard). There is a metal hanger and fabric cover at the back.

According to ancient tradition, Aphrodite was born from the waves on the site off the coast of Cyprus as "her name is Aphrodite among men and gods, because she grew up in the foam". Petra tou Romiou refers to another myth, that of the Byzantine hero Dighenis who threw the rocks at pirates to protect his lady.

Copper's finish shows wear with scuffs and surface scratches, especially on the upper half. It would benefit from gently polishing. There are creases around the Romios Stone. There are no tears, cracks or holes. Fabric shows minimal wear on the corners. Hanger is firmly secured.
