Birth of Venus – Fine Art Tapestry

The Birth of Venus is a painting by Sandro Botticelli. It depicts the goddess Venus, having emerged from the sea as a full grown woman, arriving at the sea-shore. The Greek Goddess Venus emerges from the water on a shell, blown towards shore by the Zephyrs, symbols of spiritual passions. She was received by one of the Horae Goddesses of the seasons which hands her a flowered cloak. This fine art wall tapestry is a replica of the Birth of Venus, a painting by Sandro Botticelli.
