19th century Italian Marble Figurine of Venus De Milo

About

Presenting a beautiful 19th century Italian carved white marble statue of Venus de Milo from, circa 1880. This is a lovely table-top figurine, elegant neo-classicism ! Probably purchased on the ‘Grand Tour’. The statue is circa 12 inches tall and has gorgeous original patina to the marble. Aphrodite of Milos (Greek: ?f??d?t? t?? ?????, Aphroditi tis Milou), better known as the Venus de Milo, is an ancient Greek statue and one of the most famous works of ancient Greek sculpture. Created sometime between 130 and 100 BCE, it is believed to depict Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty (Venus to the Romans). It is a marble sculpture, slightly larger than lifesize at 203 cm (6 ft 8 in) high. Part of an arm and the original plinth were lost following its discovery. From an inscription that was on its plinth, it is thought to be the work of Alexandros of Antioch; earlier, it was mistakenly attributed to the master sculptor Praxiteles. It is currently on permanent display at the Louvre Museum in Paris. The statue is named after the Greek island of Milos, where it was discovered. Provenance: Part of a Quality Dallas Private Collection.
