An artist is portraying Rihanna as the goddess she truly is

Lately, Rihanna has proven to be the ultimate muse.

Just last week, we told you about Rihanna visiting the giant, headless Rihanna statue currently on display at an art festival in Berlin.


And our bad gal continues to inspire artistic minds around the world.

Scottish artist, Reilly, has created a digital collage of Rihanna, blending her famous features with another goddess, Aphrodite.

Reilly is basing his artwork off of Aphrodite of Knidos, created by Greek sculptor, Praxiteles.


In Greek mythology, Aphrodite is the goddess of beauty, love, pleasure, and procreation. Rihanna is the goddess of slow whining, radio hits, and bad bitches in general.

The artwork will be in an upcoming exhibit at Cambridge University’s Museum of Classical Archaeology.

The exhibit, which opens in September, is called Recasting, and juxtaposes the work of contemporary artists with classical Greco-Roman creations.

Rihanna is a walking art piece, after all, so it only makes sense.
