  soon showed signs of great talents. Apart from his
  other paintings he helped paint the Sistine chapel
              The Birth of Venus
The Birth of Venus was painted by Botticelli.
I find it gives me a wonderful feeling of the moving
   wind between her hair and it gives me a sense of
   beauty.
If you look at the picture you can see all the women
   have golden red hair.
Venus has beautiful golden hair.
People who study Botticelli find that the painter
  had freed himself from the influence of others
  and relies entirely on his own resources.
  Botticelli also often painted Greek Gods.
Botticelli told a story with this painting.
               The story of Venus
The picture also shows the purity of the beautiful white
  virgin who is in a shell floating over the waves. She is
  being blown to the land by two angels . They are
  blowing roses at her . When Venus comes ashore a
  woman runs to her and covers her up in a cloth to
  cover up her body.
