Venus de Milo and the Intersection of Beauty and Politics

When a Greek peasant found a sculpture on the island of Milos, France saw a chance to regain lost glory. The History Guy remembers how the armless beauty called the Venus de Milo became one of the most recognized sculptures on earth. It is history that deserves to be remembered.
