Birth of Venus


'Thrice-fairer than myself,' thus she began,
The field's chief flower, sweet above compare,
Stain to all nymphs, more lovely than a man,
More white and red than doves or roses are;
Nature that made thee, with herself at strife,
Saith that the world hath ending with thy life'


. . . . . .


My version of the Love Goddess herself, inspired by the world renowned Botticelli's 'Birth of Venus'.
