Birth of Venus by Alessandro Botticelli - Uffizi Gallery, Florence, Italy

In an early scene from Immortal Venus, while viewing this painting, my protagonist, Megan, receives her first hint that mysterious undercurrents may be about to disrupt her life. Throughout the story, the Goddess of Love is used as a reflection of Megan’s own love life. Her husband of twenty years has been unfaithful and her foundation is shaken. Megan’s focus on the goddess, beginning with discovering her roots as the Greek goddess Aphrodite, shifts and parallels her metamorphosis and her understanding of love and life.

    Now that I have read the book I want to see the painting you describe. But you don’t have to create in on a custom wood panel.
