'The Birth of Venus' - Botticelli (1486) - Venus, the Goddess of Love, stands like a statue on a sea shell, while the goddess of the season waits with a flower print blanket. All the connotations of nature relate to the purity and beauty of this work.
The myth of the Moon Gazing Hare reflects ancient beliefs. Pagans believed that seeing a moon gazing hare would bring growth, re-birth, abundance, new-beginnings and good fortune. The hare is known to be sacred to the goddess Eostre and eventually became known as the Easter bunny.
