Round ball glass Christmas ornament of Sandro Botticelli’s masterpiece Birth of Venus. On as white background and through a white film the iconic image of the beautiful Venus, the Goddess of Beauty, love and sexuality is painted. Her brown reddish hair is flowing in the wind and her hand  is on her breast, like her hallowed predecessors and the inspiration for the image, the Greek sculpture  of Benus. The painting was done in 1486 as a commission for the Medici, and today is one of the most well known and iconic images of all art.  On the back  of the ornametn is  Botticellis’s signature.

The daPolonia glass Christmas ornaments are designed and made in Mia’s studio in Krakow Poland. Steeped in centuries old traditions of glass ornaments making, drawing on the love of art and history, the ornament continues an old tradition of uncompromising quality and artistry.

The ornaments are fully made by Mia, and 100% hand made in the old fashion way. Starting with hand blown shapes and balls, hand silvering, coating with the base coat, and hand painting and glittering. The glitter we use is environmentally safe and is the same glitter used in cosmetics.  All the molds are proprietary created by our own mold maker. In the introduction to the ornament section you can see a video of how one of our ornament is made from scratch.
