The Venus de Milo A myth
Shocked, heckled, often even somewhat mistreated, the well-known and yet still so enigmatic Venus de Milo resists the attacks that she sometimes undergoes... as well as the hypotheses that have been built up to discover the secrets that she jealously guards. Superb, half masterpiece, half cliché, she triumphs over all the traps that are set for her and her fame is growing. Modest, imperturbable and dignified although daily parodied, she has, as if content to become what we have gradually made of her: a myth.
