Philocaly is a noun that means a love of beauty. 

You may know from other words of Greek origin like philosophy and philomath that philocaly’s first five letters — PHILO — indicate a love of something. In this case it’s a love of beauty as ‘caly’ comes from the Greek word kallos (KAHL os) meaning ‘beauty.’

My love of Ancient Greek art is driven by a philocaly. The stunning beauty of the way the human body is presented is difficult to find anywhere else.
