Birth of Venus

Author Comments

I'm channeling Sandro Botticelli's famous Renaissance-era painting "Birth of Venus" here, except I decided to do my interpretation of the same theme from a different angle. You got to hand it to those Renaissance artists, they were able to pass off all sorts of nude imagery as fine art.

The symbol scarred into her back may look exactly like our modern symbol for the female sex, but it was the design I found when I searched for online images of symbols representing the goddess Venus. So I guess it started as an icon of Venus before turning into one of femaleness?
