1.) The Neoplatonic element in Botticelli's painting is of the dominant philosophy of the ancient pagan world. It evolved classical mythology as well as the suiting of the ancient pagan materials to a form prepared by the early Renaissance. This form was realistic, however, it was still modified by something of the Medieval past.
