Venus, the romantic name given to Aphrodite, represents deep ocean femininity. At the same time that the piece is shaped in detailed, complex, delicate forms, its composition provides for brutality and rigidity.
The shell, depicted in a shape that alludes to a vagina, brings forth the sea element and refers to the feminine power of creation. The woman appears in a revolving movement around herself, ironically placed in a "sanctuary" that is actually the very nature of her existence.
