In 1820, a sculpture of the Grecian goddess Aphrodite was excavated on the island of Milo in Greece. Dating to around 100 BC and more commonly known as the Venus de Milo (in reference to the Roman name for the goddess of love), the statue is now carefully preserved at the Louvre Museum in Paris, where millions of visitors flock to see its harmonious forms.
