Chagall's illustration of the classic love couple Ares and Aphrodite is an ode to sensual tenderness: Aphrodite, goddes of love, and her lover Ares, the god of war, captured in an intimate moment. The sun, high at the sky, immerges the scene in golden light that illuminates the body of the beautiful goddes. [SM].
