Venus de "Miles"

   by Ingrid Maria Pimsner and None for Re-Invent a Work of Art (2013)

Inspiration Piece: Birth of Venus

Inspiration Artist: Sandro Botticelli

I used only the material in the kit, apart from the gesso and oil paint that I used to paint the figure of Miles Mcmillan (Venus), as well as the lady admiring him (me). I used the clay to build the figures, and a piece of wire to hold the figure of me in mid air. The flower is made out of the paper from the instruction booklet. The platform is made of wood, simply glued together. Miles Mcmillan is a male model.

I had a ridiculously fun time making this.
