Venus + Mars

In Ray Bradbury, Tributes, Venus+Mars on June 17, 2012 at 10:07 pm

This just seems fitting…

Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510)

Mars was one of the lovers of Venus.
Here Mars is asleep and unarmed, while Venus is awake and alert.
The meaning of the painting is Love conquers War.
Love conquers all.

Mars is sleeping the ‘Little Death’ and not even a trumpet in his ear can wake him.
The little satyrs have stolen his lance — a joke to illustrate he is now unarmed.
Venus is still at once alert, awake and obviously victorious.

Let Love Reign
