"Venus Contemplating the Apple of Discord" (details from "Venus mit dem Apfel - Venus (Aphrodite) with an apple.") (see related A), 1813 - 1816 Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770 - 1844) Neue Pinakothek, Munich, Bavaria, Germany

Contemplative and pensive or meditative Venus - Pensar in Spanish stands for "thinking" or meditation. 

The ancient poets creativity is unsurpassed - consider - the feminine beauty of Aphrodite just like the beauty of Helen or of so many other women often are the source of discord and unhappiness of all concerned - a paradox since beauty is admired by all.
