Real-world information[edit]

The Birth of Venus

A work from the renaissance, Bottecelli's The Birth of Venus is interpreted as a homage to the female form. The focus of the painting is Venus, the Roman Goddess of beauty and love. Blown to the shore by Zephyrus, the god of the west wind, Venus is greeted by one of the Horae, a Goddess of the Seasons, who gives her a flowered cloak. Created in Florence, it remains there to this day, in the Uffizi Gallery.
