Venus and Adonis
The groundbreaking, erotic myth of Venus and Adonis centers on the intricacies of the relationship between a sexually empowered goddess and her younger consort.

In the heart of this love story, themes of power play, manipulation and yearning are explored and exploited. Venus's reluctance to surrender, coupled with Adonis's innocence, leads to both a tragic outcome and poignant transcendence.
