“Black Venus”

Concrete • Black Pigment • Metal Pedestal

50”W x 12”H x 9”D

This life-size female concrete sculpture is the embodiment of Venus, the ocean-born goddess of physical beauty and love. The female figure is laying horizontally supported by a metal pedestal. The highly polished surface of the concrete evokes the glistening appearance of the goddess’s dark skin as she emerges from the water.
