It is the goddess Venus who inspires people to love one another and to celebrate the rites of marriage. She is also associated with the rites of spring and Fertility.

Reproduction from a finely detailed and engraved copperplate, the twelve panels depict ancient mythical gods who were considered to be the protectors of each month. Originally published in Paris circa 1750.
