Venus portrays the classical image of a beautiful woman and the idea of romantic love. The image of Botticelli‘s Birth of Venus, a 14th century masterpiece, depicts the goddess of love as a young and beautiful woman, and she personifies the ideal beauty of youth. As the role of women in modern society has changed over hundreds of years so has the idea of the ideal beauty. The Venus sculpture challenges the modern perception society has of women by comparing the female to a popular idea of beauty from the 14th century.
