Inspired by the painting “The Birth of Venus”

The dreamy masterpiece by Sandro Botticelli depicts Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty emerging from the sea. She stands on a gorgeous shell in place of its pearl, appearing on the shore of either Cyprus or the island of Kythera. All around her, everything is in bloom creating a scene of spring abundance, while a gentle zephyr blows.

In our version Aphrodite appears to be posing for a selfie, bringing the worship of beauty in the context of the 21st century. Showcasing her gorgeous features, as the goddess of love, she of course earns many reactions and wins our "emoji hearts"! Her photoshoot assistants are floating, showering her with flowers, while, on the right a lone fisherman, mesmerized by the scene, holds a fishing rod towards Aphrodite hoping he might reel her in.
