Aphrodite_Venus Picture

i took this in quinta da regaleira.
the seventh god in the "gods terrace" is the beautiful goddess:
Aphrodite (greek mythology)/ Venus (roman mythology): goddess of love and beauty, but originally a vegetation goddess and patroness of gardens and vineyards; daughter of Jupiter, and some of her lovers include Mars and Vulcan, modeled on the affairs of Aphrodite. Venus' importance rose, and that of her cult, through the influence of several Roman political leaders. Roman statues and portraits of Venus are usually identical to the Greek representations of Aphrodite. Her cult originated from Ardea and Lavinium in Latium. The oldest temple known of Venus dates back to 293 BCE, and was inaugurated on August 18.
