Venus: Roman Goddess of Sexual Love
and Beauty. Her famous Renaissance depiction, birthed from sea-foam, belies her
earlier association with Artemis as a Lady of the Hunt. Venus was also Goddess
of the Oceans. The uppermost famous image, Venus rising from the seafoam, comes
from wall frescos at Pompeii, the Italian coastal city where she was
particularly venerated. Her worship by the Romans included temple instruction in
sacred sexual techniques for achieving heightened spiritual consciousness. The
metal associated with Aphrodite is copper which is abundant on the Isle of
Cyprus, an early place of worship.
The classical Goddess Venus emerges from the water on a shell, blown towards
shore by the Zephyrs, symbols of spiritual passions. According to some
authorities, the naked goddess is a symbol not of earthly, but spiritual love.
The modest pose is borrowed from the Venus Pudica type of ancient sculpture then
This distinctly pagan depiction is remarkable in that it was made at a time and
place when most artworks depicted Roman Catholic themes and is taken from the
famous pagan themed work of Botticelli. Because Botticelli was very close to
Lorenzo de Medici, his Birth of Venus painting was spared from Savonarola's
fires (who burned much of his other pagan inspired works) and he escaped the
disapproval of the Church.
Venus de Milo Statues: Speculations into what her missing arms held
include a shield, a mirror, a dove, or a spindle, but most likely it was an
apple (Melos means apple). Her award of the golden apple in the Judgment of
Paris (beating out Hera and Athena) led to the Trojan War. From an inscription
on its now-lost plinth, it is thought to be the work of Alexandros of Antioch
