A 'New' Rodin

This 2.15 metre statue of nude goddess Aphrodite was sculpted by Auguste Rodin for a play in Paris in 1913. It was cast only in plaster for its stage appearance and the original mould was thought lost. However last year the mould was discovered and the first bronze of the statue cast. It fetched over £731,000 in Christie's Impressionist and Modern Art sale in London on Thursday (CLICK).
