’Venus de Milo’’ by Alexandros of Antioch (?), ca. 130-100 B.C. This statue of Venus is one of the best-known sculptures in the Louvre in Paris. A Greek peasant is said to have found it in 1820 on the isle of Milos. When discovered, the statue was broken into two large pieces, and in her left hand the goddess was carrying an apple, while her right was holding her dress from falling on the ground.
