The Venus Pudica (modest Venus) type is a Venus statue or painting typified by the Aphrodite of Cnidus. She always covers her groin with her right hand. Variants of the Venus Pudica (suggesting an action to cover the breasts) are the Venus de' Medici or the Capitoline Venus.

Eve is usually depicted as a Venus Pudica, such as in Prudence by Giovanni Pisano.
