Vidya and Venus

Vidya and Venus are the two for V in #atozchallenge

Both are mythical women goddess from different cultures and religions –  Venus is that beautiful Roman goddess who embodies love and beauty and fertility. Vidya is that serene Hindu goddess who embodies the art of learning and knowledge.

Venus appears in multiple works of art in the different periods of art –  sculptures and paintaings.  So, is Vidya  –  there are so many ancient temples with her sculpture and the famous painter Ravi varma did beautiful paintings of Vidya.  While Venus is equalized to Aphrodite, Vidya in Indian culture is associated very closely with knowledge.

Both the women goddess still have lot of influence across humanity. Romance and Knowledge are still the most sought after in any community!
