Aphrodite of Milos (Greek: Ἀφροδίτη τῆς Μήλου, Aphroditē tēs Mēlou), better known as the Venus de Milo, is an ancient Greek statue and one of the most famous works of ancient Greek sculpture. It is currently on permanent display at the Louvre Museum in Paris.

Leonardo da Vinci, 'Mona Lisa'. It’s easy to forget that this is a portrait of a real living woman by a real living man. Mona Lisa reached such colossal fame because she seems to be alive. Her eyes follow us around the room and the warmth of life exudes from beneath her radiant skin. Her expression changes between contentment and deep sadness. Leonardo achieved this by blurring the lines around the corners of her eyes and mouth, a technique called sfumato, meaning ‘gone up in smoke’. 27 Jun 2012
