About Venus de Milo

One of the most famous examples of ancient Greek sculpture, the Venus de Milo is immediately recognizable by its missing arms. Shrouded in mystery, no one knows why her arms are missing.

Thought to have been created sometime between 130 BC and 100 AD, it is popularly believed to represent Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, known as Venus in Roman mythology.

Discovered on the island of Milos, Greece in 1820, the Venus de Milo was presented to King Louis XVIII of France, who later offered it to the Louvre Museum in Paris. Made of Parian marble, the statue measures an impressive 6 feet 8 inches (204 cm) tall and is a centrepiece of the Louvre’s collection.

Her missing arms might lend a clue to her real identity, but long lost, the debate continues. Is she Aphrodite/Venus, or perhaps the sea goddess Amphitrite, wife of Poseidon? The mystery only heightens her enigmatic appeal: indelible beauty found in imperfection.
