Venus Revisited

Venus Revisited retells the story of the birth of Venus from a more current perspective. As she rose naked from the sea, the source of all life, she comes to us - complete with accessories.

She appears with Gucci sunglasses, fishnet stockings, sea creature tattoos, a fishing lure earring, a shell crown housing a live fish in a fishbowl and carrying a sea fan.

Venus Revisited is a contemporary Venus. Perhaps a little more tattered than Botticcelli's interpretation, but regal nonetheless.
