    The sculpture of Aphrodite by Praxiteles was widely believed to be the most beautiful woman 

    ever carved into art history. As such, many copies were made, including this one at the 

    Seattle Art Museum. I have received the bust, waist, and hip measurements of this sculpture, 

    and am working with a personal trainer to get my body to these dimensions proportioned to 

    my height. A pursuit that is destined to fail, as is often the case when pursuing false bodily 

    standards.
