From Curator Socks: Known as the “Birth of Venus”, the composition represents a traditional scene from the Greek mythology portraying the goddess of love and beauty arriving fully grown on land, the island of Cyprus, born of the sea spray and blown there by the winds. She is standing on a giant shell, like a pearl and by her side, we can see who sometimes is identified as the Hora of spring holding a cloak covered in flowers. Made in Portugal using 200 needles and the most advanced craftsmanship, to produce some of the finest seamless socks on the market.
