The birth of Venus: Painting

Birth of Venus Williams by rjwh67220




I just found that here: http://www.worth1000.com/emailthis.asp?entry=212379
It´s a page where many well-known people are painted in some strange paintings.

I don´t get it! For my taste, it is not very beautiful... And in case of Vee´s picture it is so unreal, look at that fat stomach!

What do you guys say?

Most paintings of the era depicted beautiful women as volouptous (spelling). Seen the mona lisa?

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.
