Thinking about the Sea

I never thought she would think about this…

Venus

Sandro Botticelli. I like the work of this Italian painter and especially his “Birth of Venus”. Did you know that Venus, according to classical mythology was born out of sea foam? Here you see her floating out of the water on a shell.

You can admire this painting in the Uffizi gallery in Florence, Italy. It was painted around 1483.
