Like a vision, she emerged from the sea. Her powers over men and gods alike were legendary. She captivated hearts and imaginations for centuries. Now, Lalique has immortalized Venus, the unrivaled goddess of love and beauty, in a single block of satin-finished Black crystal. Femininity was always one of Rene Lalique's favorite themes. This great artist of Art Deco, also referred to as the Rodin of transparencies, often used the female figure to adorn his creations. Lalique takes up with this tradition of sculpture. Intended for collectors, this statue is a sublimated interpretation of the beauty and love goddess, featuring grace and sensuality. True artistic prowess, the Grande Nue Venus is entirely modeled in black satin-finished crystal. Her refined and powerful curves are stunningly realistic, which highlights the extraordinary capacity of Lalique Glass Masters to give crystal both shape and life, by serving creation and emotion through their traditional know-how.
