Venus is depicted full-length, her right hand resting on her breast with a demure gesture, her left hand on her pubis holding a lock of her very long hair moved by the wind. The head slightly reclined, the facial expression gentle and mild. Balanced, she is placed on the edge of a shell that leads her to the landing on the island of Cyprus.
Motion and stillness coexist in the same figure: the statuesque body and standing pose are counterpointed by the swaying hair, the delicate shell that moves pushed by the wind and waves becomes a solid support under her feet.
“Beauty will save the world.”
