Vénus de Milo

Venus of Milo

Discovered in 1820 in Milo one of the Aegean Sea islands.
Supposed representation of Aphrodite, the goddess of Love.
At the present time, the statue is in the Louvre, in Paris.
Confrontation of two canons of beauty.
From Ancient Greece to a fantasized representation of womankind in the sixties, the gap was … sidereal!
Transforming Barbie through coating meant to cancel the colors, draping cloth to emphasize her hips and belly was great fun. The plastic body looks so stiff, so expressionless, that it makes it highly malleable.
Barbie’s smile looks less stupid when you wipe out the colors.
