A classic Italian statue and souvenir from Italy!
The Birth of Venus!
Beautifully antiqued and hand-crafted.
Artist Sandro Botticelli's lyrical painting that depicts the Birth of Venus is one of the most recognizable images in the history of art. The work demonstrates Botticelli's mastery of sinuous line and supple form. And it is evident that the painter has used all of his considerable artistic skill to create a timeless masterpiece - in this image, Venus, the Classical goddess of love and beauty, is brought vividly to life.
As the title suggests, the Birth of Venus represents the moment when the goddess was born. According to Classical mythology, Venus emerged, fully grown, from the sea. And while Botticelli took his inspiration from this part of the myth, the artist also added his own embellishments.
From Early Renaissance, 1482.
