Venus and Apollo are on the facade facing south, looking out towards Italy where the architectural inspiration for the Casino comes from. The two statues are fitting symbols for Italy where sensuality is a key player in everyday culture, along with food of course, making a plate the perfect canvas for my sketch. The Italian fiery pepper, an aphrodisiac symbol used to ward off bad luck, is the final tribute to the buildings noble origins.
