I imagined the figure depicted in this bust (masterfully sculpted by Andrea Iula) undressing herself to go inside the Neptune's Bath in Rome (Ostia) in the morning.

I really loved to paint this bust as the sculpt is really amazing and different from the usual frontal pose and it's open to many interpretations, making it my favorite subject i painted so far!
