"A statue of the goddess of love found on the island of Milos. Many wonder how she originally posed."
— Museum Exhibit, Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The Beautiful Statue is a sculpture first introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. This work is based on the Venus de Milo, a marble sculpture thought to be crafted some time between 130 and 100 BC by Alexandros of Antioch, although the games lists the artist as Unknown. As one of the most famous works of Greek sculpture, it is commonly believed that the statue depicts Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty.

The statue was originally found broken in pieces within the ancient city ruins of Milos. The two pieces that remained mostly intact were the upper and lower body. Discovered with the two pieces were portions of the upper arm, and a left hand holding an apple. The original pose of the statue remains a mystery.

In New Leaf, the statue is displayed in the second Artwork room, in the northwest quadrant.
