Aphrodite of Milos, better known as the Venus de Milo, is an ancient Greek statue and one of the most famous works of ancient Greek sculpture. Created at some time between 130 and 100 BCE, it is believed to depict Aphrodite (Venus to the Romans) the Greek goddess of love and beauty. Its arms and original plinth have been lost. The Aphrodite of Milos is widely renowned for the mystery of her missing arms. There is a filled hole below her right breast that originally contained a metal tenon that would have supported the separately carved right arm. The statue is named after the Greek island of Milos, where it was discovered on 8 April 1820 by a peasant named Yorgos Kentrotas, inside a buried niche within the ancient city. It is a marble sculpture, slightly larger than life size at 6 ft 8 inches (203cm) high.
