The Birth of Venus - Mosaic by Frederic Lecut (

Marbles and Granites - 20 x 24” (51 x 61 cm)

Artist Sandro Botticelli's painting the Birth of Venus is one of the most recognizable images in the history of art. The work demonstrates Botticelli's mastery of sinuous line and supple form. In this image, Venus, the Classical goddess of love and beauty, is brought vividly to life.
The Birth of Venus represents the moment when the goddess was born. According to Classical mythology, Venus emerged, fully grown, from the sea. 

The Goddess stands in the center of the painting, modestly covering her nude body with elegant hands and masses of golden hair. A gentle breeze, which is personified as a wind god, lifts her hair of Venus.
