Renaissance Rest Cure

I found a book Giorgione’s artwork in a charity shop here – a book filled with transparent slides. This “Venus” slide is hanging in my Restorative Cures medicine cabinet to symbolize bed rest (next to eyelashes for making wishes, and bee pollen granules to make me believe in flowers). The light shines through her beautifully. It looks as though the rising sun is slowly undressing the darkness from her body as it inches from face to chest to waist. The tree in the background could be an atomic explosion or a leering eye at the window. Nothing will awaken her.
