La Venus de Milo
Venus de Milo was discovered in 1820 in Melos, a Cyclades island in Greece. It was offered to Louis XVIII who gave it to the Louvre the following year. The sculpture is composed of two marble blocks and was realized in several parts that have been separately created and then connected together with vertical seals. The arms of the statue were never found. We can see on that statue fixing holes proving that she was wearing jewels. The story of this statue is a mystery: it could represent Aphrodite, often presented half naked, or Amphitrite, sea goddess venerated in Milo.
