Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882)
Astarte Syriaca
Oil on canvas, 1875-1877
106.7 x 183 cm (3' 6.01" x 6')
Manchester City Art Galleries, Manchester, United Kingdom

Mystery: lo! betwixt the sun and moon
  Astarte of the Syrians: Venus Queen
  Ere Aphrodite was. In silver sheen
Her twofold girdle clasps the infinite boon
Of bliss of the heaven and earth commune:
  And from her neck's inclining flower-stem lean
  Love-freighted lips and absolute eyes that wean
The pulse of hearts to the spheres' dominant tune.

Torch-bearing, her sweet ministers compel
  All thrones of light beyond the sky and sea
  The witnesses of Beauty's face to be:
That face, of Love's all-penetrative spell
Amulet, talisman, and oracle,
  Betwixt the sun and moon a mystery.

-- D. G. Rossetti
