This is called The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli finished in 1485. This painting shows Venus emerging from the depths of the ocean in a clam shell as an already grown woman. One of the reasons I liked this picture was because everything in the picture revolves around Venus in the center. The two figures in the left of the painting are Zephyrus, the west wind, and Aura, the breeze, who are blowing her to shore. On the shore, the goddess of seasons, Horae, is holding a robe for the Venus. Another part of this painting that I liked was how Botticelli had the flowers almost dancing in the breeze around Venus. Although the figures on the left and right of Venus are looking at her, she is looking ahead at the viewer with a hint of a smile or pleasantness about her face.
