The Venus de MiloHellenistic Art (3rd-1st centuries BC)
In 1820, the Venus de Milo was discovered on the island of Melos in the southwestern Cyclades. Shrouded in mystery, the goddess's posture is a continuing enigma. The missing pieces of marble and the absence of attributes made the restoration and identification of the statue difficult. She is popularly thought to represent Aphrodite, because of her half-nakedness and her sensual, feminine curves.
These Artsocks inspired by the sculpture Venus de Milo show a half naked female figure without arms. Despite her fragmentary state of discovery, Venus de Milo was conceived as beautiful and complete. In spite of the absence of her limbs, she has been declared the standard of feminine beauty. By some, the lady is seen as embellished by her "flaws''. We all have certain qualities that make us both attractive and unique. See it and accept it.
