Venus di Milo 'Goddess of Love' Statue from Italy
with informative certificate and postcard from Rome
Enjoy a wonderful replica of the incredible Ancient Roman statue, The Venus di Milo 'Goddess of Love' from Italy! Beautifully antiqued and hand-crafted! 7 1/2" tall, made from poly-resin on marble base.
This famous sculpture, Venus di Milo, or Aphrodite in Greek, was sculpted by an unknown artist. Venus is variously described as being the daughter of Zeus & Dione, and as being born of the sea. She was the epitome of beautiful women, and had the power to grant beauty and irresistible charm to her worshippers.
The "Goddess of Love and Beauty" was found on the small Greek island Melos in the Agean Sea. Her missing arms were believed to be holding a shield in one, and a mirror in the other, in which she could admire her own beauty. The orginal sculpture is now on display in the famous Louvre in Paris.
7.5" tall, with informative 8'X 11" certificate and postcard from Rome.
