Marble Venus on the wall in the metrо

A stone, especially a marble can tell a story. My current story is about how the marble showed me the silhouette of Venus. Remember the picture of the incredible artist Sandro Botticelli “The Birth of Venus” Graceful, young, extraordinarily beautiful, feminine Venus was born with sea foam and then the marble protested and said: “I, too, will create Venus” - he breathed in deeply his thousand-year lungs, it was a long breath and its snow-white surface was covered with dark veins - silhouette of Venus. And then people took her to the subway. And then she lived in the veins of marble, until I saw her, to show her to you.
