An exploration of the visual differences in Botticelli’s 'sister' paintings, specifically focussing on his depiction of Venus: from maternal figure, symbolising fertility, to sexual figure, born of the sea. Drawing upon the story of Venus and the Freudian concept of the Madonna-whore dichotomy seen in present day, this TEDx talk will show the impact of the (artistic) nude on the culture today.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
