Venus De Milo Candle
Love Ally re-explores the renowned Hellenistic statue of Aphrodite from Melos (Venus de Milo). Scholars argue she stands as a timeless ideal of female beauty and is paramount in the myth of 'Judgement of Paris'.
In this tale, Paris, who was a youthful Trojan prince, was given a golden apple by the goddess of Discord and instructed to award it to the most beautiful of the three candidates: Aphrodite, Athena and Hera.
Aphrodite won the beauty contest because she bribed Paris with the love of the most beautiful woman, known as Helen of Sparta, whose mortal mother was Leda and immortal father was Zeus.
Love Ally’s creation of Venus de Milo manages to beautifully encapsulate a mysterious fusion of grandeur and grace which will enchant any area of your home.
