This sensual depiction of Pandora differs from the more static Neoclassical representations often seen in the 19th century, such as John Gibson's version in the Victoria and Albert Museum (inv. no. A.3-1922). The complex vertical folds of drapery in the present marble highlight the skill of the sculptor.
