This figural sculpture, depicting a semi-nude woman in neoclassical drapery leaning back against an elaborate architectural pedestal, must date to the end of the 19th century, but it observes the rules of earlier Academic art: the figure is not identified as a portrait of a specific person nor a character from legend. Her wisp of clothing and archaeological setting suggest an historical reference, but in her anonymity, she is a universal figure.

Fiaschi produced a great number of these figures in a variety of sizes, raising the question of the means of production of these copies. It is likely that he oversaw a studio whose team of artists created the duplicates of his original work to fill the demand that arose.
