The period of 130 and 100 BC, is believed to be the birth date of this symbolic figure of Aphrodite, the symbol of love and beauty. Marbled and astonishingly presented in a life-size, measuring 203 cm (6 ft 8 in) high, Venus de Milo allows us to take a deep breath and contemplate just for a moment the real essence of quality-rooted significance. Can be admired currently at the iconic place in French capital, Louvre Museum. The statue is being named after Aphrodite’s Roman name, Venus, and the Greek island of Milos, the place of its discovery, therefore, the origins and heritage of Venus de Milo is transparent in its name
