I feel odd for saying that the heart and the rose, in my opinion, are the entire reason for the piece. I have this feeling that you took one look and saw "naked woman" and anything else was just in the way. Please note that the painting is listed as "surreal", not in the "nudes" section.

I don't think you understood the intent of my post as I was not questioning the rose or the heart, but the reason for the plug and outlet attached to them. The mixing of water and electricity is what I find distracting on this piece as the metaphor of the Goddess of love holding symbols of love still exist without the plug attached to the rose. Because of that inclusion it both changes the meaning that may be taken from the piece, which since I am not the creator I cannot say what meanings are placed, and also adds the touch of surrealism which may be the very reason those are included. What I had meant by distracting was that I had trouble getting past the electric plug to enjoy the piece on a whole as I, as I have said, felt it was out of place, thus my mind asked why the plug was there.

As for its section, it was linked to me, so I didn't see the section it was under when I posted. Have a good evening.

excuse me. release the air from your head, no need to be rude and so assuming. it was a simple question about the piece, nothing relative to the nudity,

The heart is a little too big for a woman but the feeling and concept you captured is very impressive

It's more than a little too big; that's how you know it's completely abstract in this image. If anything, it's meant to resemble a simplified illustration of a heart in a textbook. Your heart is only about the same size as your fist.

I adore surreal works! I'm not much one for the naked female form, but I can appreciate it, especially when it's done tastefully.

This reminds me quite a bit of Salvador Dali's work. Was he perhaps an inspiration?

Either way, amazing interpretation of the goddess! I see you used the heart, and the rose, which are both commonly used to portray love, and given that she's the goddess of love, I don't think you could've picked better. =)

Congrats!

I very much like it, though I don't understand the concept of a landing strip. Lol it's like, I thought you were shaving?? xD

It's a matter of personal choice. Maybe the artist wanted to break away from the standard that women "have" to shave their pubic area. I think it's a very bold stance that meets people on either end of the argument in the middle (pun intended). Venus represents love and femininity and beauty and I think the fact she has hair at all is a bold move that I appreciate and whole hearted applaud.
