Venus was the goddess of love, desire and beauty. There most well known myth about her birth was when Cronus castrated his father Uranus and tossed his severed genitals into the sea, Venus arose from the sea foam on a giant shell and walked to shore. Venus was the patron of love and lovers. She enjoyed in trapping other gods in love affairs, and she herself was not left out of the game. Being the lame god Hephaestus' wife, she embarked on an affair with Ares. This statue is beautifully designed, sculpted and handcrafted to the finest detail in cold cast metal (Bronze/pewter) finish.
