Vulcan Presenting Venus with Arms for Aeneas (French - Les Forges de Vulcain) is a 1757 painting by François Boucher, now in the Louvre in Paris. He produced it as the basis for one of a set of tapestries on The Loves of the Gods. It depicts the homely but muscular Vulcan on the ground in the right, offering up to the more celestial Venus the weapons he has forged for her son Aeneas.
