Photograph of the statue known as the Venus de Milo, portrayed as a young woman standing in a pose with her right leg straight and her left leg bent slightly, so that her body is turned and leaning slightly to the right, giving her torso an elegant curve. Her hair is waved and tied up at the back, and she is wearing some drapery wrapped around her hips. Her arms are missing.
