BESWICK BOTTICELLI BIRTH OF VENUS CERAMIC ART VASE PARASTONE GIFT BOXED

A beautiful stand alone piece this vase will attract
many admiring looks or can be displayed with
others in this collection.

The Birth of Venus is undoubtedly one of the world’s most
famous and appreciated works of art.
Painted by Sandro Botticelli between 1482 and 1485, it has become a landmark of XV century Italian painting, so rich in meaning and allegorical references to antiquity.
The theme comes from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, a very
important oeuvre of the Latin literature.
Venus is portrayed naked on a shell on the seashore; on
her left the winds blow gently caressing her hair with a
shower of roses, on her right a handmaid (Ora)
waits for the goddess to go closer to dress her shy body.
The meadow is sprinkled with violets, symbol of modesty
but often used for love potions.
