Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

As i'm sure we're all aware, Venus is the Roman goddess of love (and also beauty, sex, fertility, prosperity and desire). The Romans adapted the myths and iconography of her Greek counterpart Aphrodite to suit their own needs. Venus would later become one of the most widely referenced deities of Greco-Roman mythology as the embodiment of love and sexuality.

She wasn't always like this though. When she was a young woman, before she had godly duties to perform, she was a little less certain of where her future lay. She was a bit socially awkward and the way she dressed and carried herself could only be described as drab and unassuming. One day however a chance encounter with a dashing young demi-god taught her what it was to love and be loved. With this awakening she blossomed into the the fun and vivacious deity we all know and love. She found she excelled at her celestial duties but still wonders what happened to that young demi-god. If only she could remember his name...
