  1. The beautiful object, what is it?

I would think that the beautiful object is Venus herself, as she is the focal point of the painting.

2. How you felt moved by it?

Her image did move me as it had made me curious about how she was depicted, such as why is a conch shell used for her to stand upon or why are her feet slanted?

3. The impact on you of having been moved or not?

It had only sparked a curiosity about her image in general, and probably as to why she was painted as she was.
