One of my favorite paintings of the Renaissance period is Boticelli's Venus de Milo. She's beautiful and the colors are fantastic. I also have a love-hate-love relationship with Leonardo diVinci. I love him for the mind he had to wrap around geometry and some of his inventions. So I knew I just had to work this out somehow. The resulting digital collage has a layer of mica built in to add even more age to the images that make it look more like stone than paper, paint and canvas. Because, stone is ageless.
Yes, I did some editing of Vetruvius Man; I didn't want to be accused of some pornographic message but I also didn't want to have to put pants on him, although that could be a humorous take on the imagery. Perhaps I need to revisit this concept?!
