In this photoshopped image you can see playboy model Sylwia Romaniuk inside of painting by Botticelli. Outstanding work by Sandro Botticelli – Birth of Venus / Nascita di Venere despite fact of its antiquity is probably most important masterpiece in history of erotic art. That is the first known item depicting nudity and created by great master of arts. Picture was not just revolutionary for its time but also bore some certain risk as church that controlled almost everything in arts of that time could easily end Botticelli’s career if considering that image of pagan goddess (Venus) is too unsuitable for good christian’s eyes. I would not that if you find classic arts to be boring just skip this article, because it is not for those who thing that classical art is boring thing.
But probably this article is exactly for this kind of people too, because they may find that art is not that tiring. Botticelli was indeed outstanding person of his time. Today many people can’t even imagine what restrictions were imposed by Catholic Church in sphere of arts. Divina Commedia is considered to be greatest thing in whole italian literature, but it was first published over two hundred years after death of its author (Dante) and sixty nine years after Botticelli finished hie birth of Venus. In fact there is nothing humiliating christian morals in the book, just it was unusual for that time as it was written in style of fantasy. So i suppose we better believe that that time they would surely ban things like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter.
It is considered that Botticelli used risky path of employing pantheistic understanding of the God and of its divinity in order to portrait the Venus. In his painting he explained that divinity may come in this sort of beauty too. That means he actually portrait force of christian god in shape of pagan goddess. Thus he made revolution. After his work was approved by society many other great painters continued his ideas portraying female nudity in art. That is why this painting is so important for this sort of creative art.
Since the legend of Venus, who according to myth was born from the sea, artists employ image of beauty among waves. And that is also true about contemporary days. Italians for sure introduced lots of great things like Ferrari, Renaissance and Calcio. Tradition once began by Botticelli now flourishes. And that is including Playboy photo shoots too.
It is almost impossible to count how many times playboy photographers used beach or coast, seaside or oceanside for their photo shoots. The same way there are countless appearnces of playmates enjoying waterpools, swimming underwater or just appearing from water.
In many cases really good things once began are continued through generations.
