I promised I would post an update of Venus - now printed on cloth I'm about 3/4 of the way done with embellishing her with beads and embroidery and am enjoying reading about Botocelli's Venus again, after seeing her in Florence 5 years ago. The mythology surrounding Aphrodite and the theories surrounding Venus coming out of the sea fascinate me. This is just a scan but it does show the stitching in fair detail if you click on it and view it larger.
Any suggestions on how I might add other details before I send her off are welcome!!
