Venus/ Demi

 This piece shows the full figured woman as a fertility goddess. Her ample breasts are a symbol of nourishment and the significant size of the idols body is not only a sign of beauty, but an emblem of a giver of life.

In this magazine cover, Demi shows the satisfaction women feel when they have the ability to be with child. She is not afraid nor embarrased to show the world her body that has been transformed from her normal physique to her body that is full of life. It is a proud moment for her and she wants to share with everyone willing to look.

Comparing both figures we see that Venus is more of a talisman that was used to hold in one’s possession, while the magazine cover was for the sake of entertainment. They have similar meanings like birth, but have different reasons for being.
