This little Venus de Milo figurine isn't made of marble or anything but to me that doesn't matter because I've always loved this statue. Ever since I was a child I've been fascinated by her and her use in many other forms of art and her influence on pop culture. We have a much larger version of her in our garden amongst the bushes where I think is a perfect place for her. I've looked for a tinier version of her for years so seeing this in a charity shop was a complete surprise.
This version was spotted in a charity shop window just by chance and of course I took her, being what she is and one of the statues I've always wanted. I presume she is made out of a kind of white stone rather like marble,as she is weighty and not a hollow cast.
Not sure of any other information surrounding her- cost was €4 ($4.68/ £3.57)
