venus de milo

Do you know Greek gods? Roman gods? Egyptian gods? If you don't just look them up online because today I am showing you the world famous statue of Venus de Milo. Venus is a Roman god but you might know her as a Planet. This statue was created in 100-130 B.C.E, and stood the test of time, all but the arms. The Venus de Milo was an ancient Greek statue that should have been name Aphrodite de Milo. I think that this statue is one of the best Praxiteles statues, and is timeless.
hope you like my blog
p.s This statue is on display at the Louvre Museum, Paris, France.
