Venus Rises From Our Window

Another art deco discovery from the hand of Giovani Ronzan for the Lenci company (see eagle from late last week). This classic version of the legend of "Venus Rising from the Sea" has a distinctive 1930s quality to the form. Arms upstretched make our girl not nearly as modest as Botticelli's.
Venus reaches up to just about 20"
