Silk Embroidry Painting 'The Birth of Venus'

The Birth of Venus is probably Botticelli's most famous painting. The picture hung in the country villa of the Medici along with "Primavera", indicating that the work was commissioned by the Medici family. Venus rises from the sea, looking like a classical statue and floating on a seashell, in what is surely one of the most recognisable images in art history. On Venus' right is Zephyrus, God of Winds, he carries with him the gentle breeze Aura and together they blow the Goddess of Love ashore. The Horae, Goddess of the Seasons, waits to receive Venus and spreads out a flower covered robe in readiness for the Love Goddess' arrival.

You have probably seen hundreds of oil painting reproductions of The Birth of Venus. But have you ever thought of reproducing this masterpiece painting with silk threads by hand? Below is an embroidery painting we reproduced from the oil painting 'The Birth of Venus'. It is all hand embroidered with silk threads on silk.
