at their angles, and by the upper lip continuing so, for a considerable 

portion of its length. It expresses love of pleasure by the central 

development of both lips, and active love by the especial development of 

the lower lip. By the slight opening of the lips, it expresses desire. 

 

These exquisite details, and the omission of nothing intellectually 

expressive that nature presents, have led some to imagine the Venus de 

Medici to be a portrait. In doing so, however, they see not the profound 

calculation for every feature thus embodied. More strangely still, they 

forget the ideal character of the whole: the notion of this ideal head 

being too small, is especially opposed to such an opinion. 

 

Withal, the look is amorous and languishing, without being lascivious, 

and is as powerfully marked by gay coquetry, as by charming innocence. 

 

The young neck is exquisitely formed. Its beautiful curves show a 

thousand capabilities of motion; and its admirably-calculated swell over 

the organ of voice, results from, and marks the struggling expression of 

still mysterious love. 

 

With regard to the rest of the figure, the admirable form of the mammae, 

which, without being too large, occupy the bosom, rise from it with 

various curves on every side, and all terminate in their apices, leaving 

the inferior part in each precisely as pendent as gravity demands; the 

flexile waist gently tapering little farther than the middle of the 

trunk; the lower portion of it beginning gradually to swell out higher 

even than the umbilicus; the gradual expansion of the haunches, those 

expressive characteristics of the female, indicating at once her fitness 

for the office of generation and that of parturition--expansions which 

increase till they reach their greatest extent at the superior part of 

the thighs; the fulness behind their upper part, and on each side of the 

lower part of the spine, commencing as high as the waist, and 

terminating in the still greater swell of the distinctly-separated hips; 

the flat expanse between these, and immediately over the fissure of the 

hips, relieved by a considerable dimple on each side, and caused by the 

elevation of all the surrounding parts; the fine swell of the broad 

abdomen which, soon reaching its greatest height immediately under the 

umbilicus, slopes neatly to the mons veneris, but, narrow at its upper 

part, expands more widely as it descends, while, throughout, it is 

laterally distinguished by a gentle depression from the more muscular 

parts on the sides of the pelvis; the beautiful elevation of the mons
