Paintings like The Birth of Venus belong to the heritage of humankind because of the topic depicted. Composed between 1482 and 1485, Sandro Botticelli's work is one of the first and most famous ones; but let’s not forget William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s extreme sensual painting, or Uma Thurman’s dreamy scene at The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. The goddess of love, sex and desire has been a recurring theme in every art expression since forever, and it will continue like that until none of us exist. Because, how cool is being born from an Olympic god’s cut penis thrown into the sea?
