Comic #3879

1 Minnesota Jones: Ah, delving into antiquities never gets old! It reminds me of the first artefact I ever discovered.
2 Minnesota Jones: Digging in a Roman villa on Sicily, I found a magnificent statue of Venus Anadyomene. The birth of the goddess from a seashell.
3 Minnesota Jones: Exquisite work, inlaid with mother-of-pearl. Oh, and the workmanship on Venus herself!
4 Monty: Was she wearing a peplos or other robes?
4 Minnesota Jones: No, she was completely nacred!

Venus Anadyomene is the representation of the Roman goddess Venus (or her Greek equivalent, Aphrodite), emerging from the sea. One of the most famous versions of this is Botticelli's The Birth of Venus, which represents the birth of the goddess as she emerges from a giant seashell.

Seashells also produce mother of pearl, of course...
