Gradiva (The woman who walks) is the female protagonist of the 1903 novella by Wilhelm Jensen Gradiva: Ein pompejanisches Phantasiestück (Gradiva: A Pompeiian Fancy). She has become a modern mythological figure, having sprung out of the imagination of a fictional character and thus doubly unreal.

The fictional character in question is a young archaeologist, the male protagonist, who is fascinated by a female figure in an antique bas-relief and gives her the name 'Gradiva' after Mars Gradivus, the Roman god of war walking into battle; later, not quite certain whether he is awake or dreaming he meets her in the ruins of Pompeii.
