This design is inspired by the well known classical myth about the birth of Aphrodite by Hesiod. Aphrodite is born from the foams of the Mediterranean sea and carried towards Cyprus by the West Wind. Botticelli depicts such divine imagery in his famous work "Birth of Venus"; the icon of the Early Florentine Renaissance.
In our design, the sheer organza represents Aphrodite's just-born nude body, adorned with pearls and shells; symbolizing her rise from the sea! The hand-sewn pearls and natural seashells are combined with shiny mirrors and beads; to ornament your look and radiate beauty.
The gold embroidery in the center is inspired by Aphrodite's epithet; Χρυσεη, meaning golden!
This piece is hand-beaded and machine embroidered. It was the N1 tunic presented during the APHRODISIAC Fashion Show on February 8, 2020.
Size: L (Oversized)
Crystals, mirrors and natural pearls.
