Aphrodite of Milos, better known as the Venus de Milo, is an ancient Greek statue and one of the most famous works of ancient Greek sculpture. Created at some time between 130 and 100 BCE, it is believed to depict Aphrodite (Venus to the Romans) the Greek goddess of love and beauty. It is a marble sculpture, slightly larger than life size at 203 cm (6 ft 8 in) high. Its arms and original plinth have been lost, it is thought to be the work of Alexandros of Antioch; it was mistakenly attributed to the master sculptor Praxiteles.

The goddess of love, her graceful body symbolizes an ideal of beauty. The French named her Venus de Milo (Venus of Melos). In 1820 a peasant named Yorgos found her broken body in an underground cavern on the Aegean island of Melos. Later she was spirited out of Greece under questionable circumstances and taken to the Louvre in Paris.
