Venus de Milo, historical statue of Aphrodite in Paris at the Louvre. It was discovered on April 8, 1820 on the Aegean island of Melos. An inscription which is not shown with the statue says that?Alexandros, son of Menides, the statue was made by citizen of Antioch of Maeander.? The general makeup derives from a 4th century-bc Corinthian statue. The actions and drapery that is modernized give great nobility to the Venus. The statue is a noticeable instance of the Hellenistic sculptural convention?s close reliance and academic characteristics on older masterpieces.
