Object Literature

The roman goddess Venus, and her Greek predecessor Aphrodite, are associated with love, beauty, pleasure and passion. A common subject in the history of art, the ancient myths of Venus have been immortalised in painting by the likes of Botticelli, as well as in sculpture. The famous Venus de Milo, today in the Louvre, may have been the inspiration for the present bust.
