Venus of Arles-Bronze Patina. Sculpture representing the Venus of Arles. The original is located in the Louvre Museum and dates back to the 1st century BC.

This Venus sculpture was found in the French town of Arles in the 17th century during the excavation of a well. Later, King Louis XIV moved it to Versailles to adorn the Hall of Mirrors. During the French Revolution, it became part of the confiscated assets of the royal family and became part of the Louvre’s collection since the museum’s foundation.

In classical mythology, Venus, identified in Rome with the Greek goddess Aphrodite, is the goddess of love, beauty, and fertility. The myth tells of Venus’s birth from the foam generated by the fall into the sea of the genitals of the sky god, Uranus, mutilated by his son Cronos-Saturn. Venus was represented with symbolic attributes such as the rose and the mirror, and animals such as the dove or the swan, and represents love in all its facets, ranging from spiritual love and union, as Aphrodite Urania, to human desire and passion, as Aphrodite Pandemos.

Venus is attributed loves with various lovers, both divine and human, from Vulcan, the god of smiths and fire, her legitimate husband, or his brother, Mars, the god of war, to mortals like the handsome Adonis, for whose death she descended to Hades, or the Trojan prince Anchises, from whom she begot Aeneas, considered by the Romans as her mythical predecessor.
