Venus de Milo Takes a Parisian Spin: Iconic Statue Heads to National Assembly for Olympic Games Promotion


The Venus de Milo, one of the most iconic works of ancient Greek art, has left its home at the Louvre Museum for a temporary stay at the French National Assembly. The statue is accompanied by six representations of itself in different sports and colours, all in promotion of the 2024 Olympic Games, which will be held in Paris.

The move is part of a larger effort by the French government to promote the Olympic Games and to celebrate the country's rich cultural heritage. The Venus de Milo is a perfect symbol for both of these goals. It is a masterpiece of ancient art, and it is also a powerful symbol of the Olympic spirit.

The statue will be on display at the French National Assembly until September 22, 2024. During that time, it will be open to the public free of charge. Visitors will be able to see the statue up close and to learn more about its history and significance.
