Aphrodite by lilok-lilok Aphrodite by lilok-lilok
Aphrodite (Greek: Ἀφροδίτη; Latin: Venus) is the Greek goddess of love and beauty.


Aphrodite was associated with Golden Apple of Discord by Eris and with magic girdle. The word ΚΑΛΛΊΣΤῌ (Ancient Greek: kallistē, Modern Greek: kallisti; "for/to the most beautiful") was inscribed on the Golden Apple of Discord by Eris. Καλλίστῃ is the dative singular of the feminine superlative of καλλός, beautiful.

I love this drawing. Every detail, from the apple to the plant on the left, the fantastic dress and the hair (oh, the hair is great!). Awesome, amazing. Great job. She's a perfect goddess of love and sex.
