St. Expeditus but he wasn't quite happy in there. I bought a beautiful little Madonna statue, Our Lady of the Cape to be specific, but her crown wouldn't let her fit inside.
But it this little grotto wasn't meant for a saint after all... it was meant for a little Venus de Milo!
And the little space seems a fitting shrine for the goddess of love and beauty. A smidgen of space to dedicate to prettiness. The original Venus de Milo (or Aphrodite of Milos as is her proper name!) was actually discovered burried in a niche, so I'd like to think she's happy to be tucked in her little arched shrine box.

Ahhh what a delight! I could hide away in that grotto for days. . . the Venus is a perfect centerpiece for it and gives it a truly magical feel in it's own way. I can almost feel the earthy, floral and ancient essence all around it!ReplyDelete
