Canova's Naiad -- A Partial View by 


In Greek mythology, Naiads were beautiful nymphs (female spirits) who presided over fresh bodies of water, such as lakes, rivers and streams. The most famous sculpture of a Naiad was made by Antonio Canova around 1820. This is a partial view of the full-bodied marble sculpture, and was photographed at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., where she is a star attraction.
