Illustration Friday - Legendary

Legendary Beauty: a collage
For those of you who aren't aware, the figure on the shell is Aphrodite / Venus the Greek / Roman goddess of love and beauty.  The Greek figure on the right is Helen of Troy, a woman so beautiful that men went to war over her (The Trojan War) and the goddesses were jealous of her.  Other than that there's Marilyn Monroe the legendary voluptuous blonde and Audrey Hepburn the legendary elfin brunette.  Then there's the modern beauties, Angelina Joile (my favourite), Charlize Theron and I can't think of who the other is.  The 3 in the background are randoms from catalogues I had lying around.  The poem was written by the legendary Lord Byron.
