Description Botticellis 'The Birth of Venus' is among the most treasured masterpieces of the Renaissance. He depicts the beautiful, pagan goddess of love Venus, as a symbol of the coming spring. In my opinion one of the most important aspects of this painting is motion, which symbolizes energy, and I tried to highlight this side of Botticellis Venus in my artwork. No orange trees with leaves in the background, no roses sprinkled throughout the atmosphere, no waves, no other persons, no seashell, as a symbol for a woman's vulva - just a naked woman and pure energy!
