The Renaissance Dancer was designed as part of the Albion Design challenge and was inspired by the Renaissance painting "The Birth of Venus". Renaissance means ‘rebirth’ and in the painting the goddess Venus emerges from the sea onto the shore after her birth. If you’ve ever had a dip in the cold sea, you will know that you come out feeling refreshed and rejuvenated so it’s very true to life! Being on the beach with the sun and fresh air surrounding you also gives you this feeling so I thought it would be the perfect match for the renaissance theme. The figure is dancing in an elegant, yogic way which also represents revival.

Subtle details in the painting are the small flowers being blown by the wind God Zephyr which I have included in the design. Another thing which I love about Renaissance paintings are the rays of sunshine and the details to the clouds which I have also incorporated. The whale tail in the background is a personal touch!
