Above, Venus is also referenced as having hidden in the form of a mermaid.
Dog Wool could be similar, as well, to the wearing of skins in a sacrifice or the taking of a pelt or fur to embody an animal and their power.
The skewers of the Dagwood further emphasize this as skewers for butchered meat.
And also ties the goddess Venus–hereafter referred to as Aphrodite– (and possibly her bloodline) to the mythic spindle (heavily referenced in the fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty).
