Greece - MILOS Island 1/2
"Olivier Voutier, a French naval officer, was exploring the island. With the help of the young farmer, Voutier began to dig around what were clearly ancient ruins. Within a few hours Voutier had uncovered a piece of art that would become renowned throughout the world. About ten days later, another French naval officer,Jules Dumont d'Urville, recognized its significance and arranged for a purchase by the French ambassador to Turkey".
The statue is now in the Louvre museum.
Life here at Milos island is very peaceful. So a peaceful balad is suited : "Balade pour Adeline"
