A FEW WORDS FROM THE ARTIST: Venus is a roman goddess of love, beauty and fertility. She has been depicted in numerous paintings and sculptures thru art history. I wanted to create a beautiful woman and since Venus never actually existed I found her an interesting subject. The hands a very expressive and a venue for the artist to give her a voice. In contrast the ancient Greek statue Venus de Milo famously has no arms, they broke off the marble. I call this new sculpture Venus de Ola for fun. Since the photos of the clay were taken I added a shell on the base, her symbol. She came out of the ocean and is often identified by a shell, like in Botticelli's painting of her where she stands in a shell. The base has a water/wave feel to it.
