Aphrodite (Greek: Ἀφροδίτη; Latin: Venus) is the Greek goddess of love and beauty.


Aphrodite was associated with Golden Apple of Discord by Eris and with magic girdle. The word ΚΑΛΛΊΣΤῌ (Ancient Greek: kallistē, Modern Greek: kallisti; "for/to the most beautiful") was inscribed on the Golden Apple of Discord by Eris. Καλλίστῃ is the dative singular of the feminine superlative of καλλός, beautiful.

Like the goddess herself, this picture is beautiful. From how golden Aphrodite's hair looks, to the sunset glimmering of the ocean.

The only thing I would change about this, would be to make Aphrodite a bit more meatier. But that's just my taste.

I love this drawing. Every detail, from the apple to the plant on the left, the fantastic dress and the hair (oh, the hair is great!). Awesome, amazing. Great job. She's a perfect goddess of love and sex.
