The present carving relates to two larger ivories representing Venus and attributed to Faydherbe in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge (inv. no. M 410-1985) and the Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg (Youssoupoff collection). The graceful stance and the rendering of the face and drapery comapre particularly closely. The basket of fruit and the feathers held by this figure are traditionally representative of 'taste' and 'touch'.
