~ Venus ~

Venus, the Roman goddess of love, beauty, victory, and prosperity, was born from the sea fully-grown. She became the wife of Vulcan (god of fire), lover of Mars (god of war), and later mother of Cupid, and is a powerful deity in her own right. She is known for her great beauty, and in mythology is said to have mesmerized mortals and gods alike. She has sparked wonder in the souls of many great men throughout history. One of the most well known paintings of her is The Birth of Venus by Italian artist Sandro Botticelli, which partly inspired my own portrayal of Venus, presented here.
