This plastic is part of the large panel essay, "birth of beauty", which was created by Paul Scheurich at the end of his life for the Berlin porcelain manufactory. The then Reich foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop had given him in the manufacture in 1940 in order.

"Scheurich chose the theme "birth of beauty", the centerpiece should form the group of the Venus Anadyomene. Only a part of this from the Nereids, tritons on dolphins riding cherubs and other sea creatures existing work came to the execution. Scheurichs style has changed in this last work. His characters no longer have the carefree grace of Rococo, but the überschl show more Anke, is full of tension, due to strong double post excellent attitude of mannerism." (from: economic paper (1966), p. 154)
