"Thanks to art, instead of seeing a single world, our own, we see it multiply until we have before us as many worlds as there are original artists."
Terry Gilliam recreated this in The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. I can't find a screenshot, but Uma Thurman was Aphrodite.
This picture brings back memories of my college art appreciation class. Every week the instructor showed slides and talked about a different area of art--and every week he managed to show the slide of this picture and relate it to everything from painting to ceramics to architecture to...you name it.
Every time I see this work I think of my Mum. When she was young she looked just like this Venus. Adam Harvey - my Mum doesn't look anything like Um Thurman though!:) Thanks Martha..
