Venus Aresin from the Waves

Venus on the half-shell

Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, reenacted by ball-jointed dolls. Those are about four and a half inches high – they’re Puki Pukis, made by Cerberus Project. Cupid is a ‘Cupid’, the other two are both the ‘Flora’ model.

For comparison, here’s the original. I’m rather impressed by how well a four and a half inch doll can recreate Venus’s pose. Mind you, it’s not entirely anatomically probable for a living model, at that.
