Filled with mythological themes, this fine art tapestry "Birth of Venus II - Boticelli" shows the famous Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli. It was thought that it was possible that Lorenzo di Pierfrancesco de Medici commissioned this work for his Villa di Castello. However, others conclude that this work was in fact dedicated to Simonetta Cattaneo Vespucci, a love of both Giuliano di Piero de Medici and Botticelli, who lived in a seaside town that revered the Venus. Therefore Simonetta herself was thought by those who believed the latter, that she was the model for Venus. Here we see Venus standing on her clamshell, just birthed from the sea. To the left is Zephys, the god of winds, who coaxes Venus out of the water towards the land. To the right stands Horae, the goddess of love, who with a red shawl, is ready to receive her onto the land. This Renaissance wall art tapestry "Birth of Venus II - Boticelli" is backed with lining and a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
