Art History Showdown: Venus vs. Venus

April 20, 2011

I think it’s finally time we address the question we’ve been asking ourselves ever since that first semester of Art History: Who would win in a fight between the Venus of Willendorf and the Venus di Milo?

At first glance it seems like the Venus of Willendorf would be the obvious winner, being that she has the build of a sumo wrestler and the Venus di Milo doesn’t have any arms.

But wait! The Venus of Willendorf doesn’t appear to have any arms either. Or any eyes for that matter. And she’s only 4 inches tall!

My money is on the Venus di Milo.
