Sandro Botticelli's The Birth of Venus,
the Goddess of Love rises from the sea on a shell that is now
named for her. The original painting was commissioned by the
powerful Medici family who asked the painter to represent Venus in
the manner of the ancients. She arose on the shell and was swept to
shore by flying wind-gods amongst a shower of roses.
This striking pendant measures 7/8 inch wide by 1-1/4 inch long.
Made of vitreous enamel, each pendant is assembled by hand, so
please allow for some variability. The background features a vignette from the painting with the sea and some angels.
Equally beautiful as jewelry or as an art element in a shrine or
assemblage, this unique piece is conservatively priced for such
