Also known as Aphrodite of Milos, this statue is known to be a representation of the goddess Aphrodite. The value of this statue is priceless because of its age, constructed 130-100 BCE, and its great preservation. The reason why it is so famous and loved is also because of its depiction of raw female beauty. Although she is widely renowned for the mystery of her missing arms, enough evidence remains to prove that the right arm of the statue was lowered across the torso with the right hand resting on her raised left knee so it would appear to hold the sliding drapery wrapped around the hips and legs in place. There is a filled hole below her right breast that originally contained a metal tenon that would have supported the separately carved right arm.
In New Horizons, the sculpture can be donated to the museum and be added to the art gallery. As this sculpture can be bought from Jolly Redd's Treasure Trawler, players should keep in mind that they may be purchasing a forgery.
