Aphrodite on red oil 8x10” on canvas panel
The Model for this painting was a replica of the famous Ancient Greek Venus de Milo statue. It’s amazing to think that the original statue was created over 2000 years ago!
Aphrodite is a Goddess associated with love, beauty, pleasure, passion and procreation, also often represented by the colour red. The Romans reinvented her as their Goddess Venus.
I am fascinated by ancient cultures and surprised how much of their art survives to this day.
