Description

The Venus de Milo or Aphrodite of Melos is an ancient Greek marble sculpture that was created during the Hellenistic period. Its exact dating is uncertain, but the modern consensus places it in the 2nd century BC, perhaps between 160 and 110 BC. It was rediscovered in 1820 on the island of Milos, Greece, and has been displayed at the Louvre Museum since 1821. Since the statue’s discovery, it had become one of the most famous works of ancient Greek sculpture in the world.

The Venus de Milo is believed to depict Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love. Made of Parian marble, the statue is larger than life size, standing over 2 meters high. The statue is missing both arms. The original position of these missing arms is unknown but was originally identified as depicting Aphrodite holding the apple of discord as a marble hand holding an apple was found alongside it.
