Synopsis

This book delves into the history and archaeological study of the Venus de Milo, one of the most renowned works of ancient Greek sculpture. Created during the Hellenistic period, the statue is believed to depict the goddess of love, Aphrodite, or possibly the sea-goddess Amphitrite. Despite being missing both arms, the statue stands at an impressive 6 feet 8 inches and is made of Parian marble. Discovered in 1820 by a Greek farmer in a buried niche on the island of Milos, the Venus de Milo has captured the imaginations of art enthusiasts and scholars for centuries. This book provides a comprehensive examination of the statue's origins, creators, and historical context.
