XS Venus De Milo
This ancient Venus statue
is also known as the Aphrodite goddess. The original
goddess Venus statue can be found in Paris at
the Louvre Museum. Venus De Milo / Aphrodite was
carved by the sculptor of Antioch on the Maeander
River at about 150 BC and it was only later rediscovered.
The general composition was derived from a 4th-century
Corinthian statue. In Greek Mythology the goddess
Aphrodite's son was named Eros for the Greeks
and Cupid, the god of love and sexual desire and
the messenger of love, for the Romans. To this
day the Venus statue remains a sculptural masterpiece
with few equals.
