[GBM] Bodies of evidence

Minerva by Paolo Barbieri

The Judgment of Paris in G. B. Marino's version: In the end, all three goddesses accept to strip in front of Paris. A cosmic event, that affects the whole Nature.

2.125

As finally those three models of
perfection put down their clothes,
and, of their immortally beautiful bodies,
the most hidden parts were exhibited,
among their own shadows novel lights     "their" i.e. of the caverns
were seen by the most secret caverns;     allusion
and no created thing in the environs
failed to feel love's power in itself.
