									Aeneid Artwork
How do these two pictures depict
           Aeneas?
The subject is taken from Virgil's Aeneid (1:314-371). The goddess Venus,
the mother of Aeneas, appeared to him twice, first in the midst of burning
  Troy to bid him be on his way. Later, when the Trojans were washed
    ashore near Carthage after the storm at sea, Aeneas and his friend
Achates set out to explore Venus appeared once more, this time with bow

   and quiver disguised as a huntress, to direct them to Dido's palace.
How do these two pictures depict the role of the gods in the
            relationship of Dido and Aeneas?
How does this picture show the relationship between Dido
                      and Aeneas?
