A well used icon.

Botticelli Reimagined is an exhibition at the V&A in London.

A large part of the collection is based on his painting of Venus. 

Yes it is beautiful.

Everyone else seems to have had a go at capturing this famous work.

Icons can be used to sell products or capture our attention.

If they are overworked we switch off.

The question is whether the inspirational works derived from the Venus can be classed as”original”.

However, we all need inspirational art work in our life.

It takes us away from the mundane to a world of immense beauty and tranquility.

This alone makes it worthwhile.
