Photo of the Venus de Milo in Paris, France

The Venus de Milo, a statue carved between 130 and 100 BC from marble, is in the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. The statue is said to be Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, who the Romans knew as Venus. The statue stands slightly larger than life size, on an elevated plinth. The Venus de Milo statue was found in 1820 and has featured widely in popular culture.
