This life-size female concrete sculpture is the embodiment of Venus, the ocean-born goddess of beauty and love. The female figure lays down horizontally while supported by a metal pedestal.

The polished surface of the black concrete evokes the goddess’ glistening skin as she emerges from the ocean. A spring pops outward from her neck to symbolize the cerebral activity during her state of relaxation.
