Venus Out Of The Waves

How many of you know the story of Venus? (Her Roman name. Aphrodite to her Greek worshipers.) She was born out of the waves on a beach on the island of Cypress.

You all know my love of Leopold's novel, right? Would Venus/Wanda look like this in your dreams, too?

I rather like the original lady that inspired the book, or at least its opening (see blog).

There was a time when curve ladies were in vogue. Lovely painting, Giles. Thank you.
