Antonio Canova (1757 - 1822), Psyche Revived by Cupid's Kiss - Marblre; H. : 1,55 m. ; L. : 1,68 m. ; D. : 1,01 m.
This winged young man who has just landed on a rock where a girl lies unconscious, is the god Eros - Cupid in Latin - and can be recognized by his wings and his quiver filled with arrows. The girl's name is Psyche. Cupid's mother Venus, goddess of Beauty, demanded that Psyche bring back a flask from the Underworld, strictly forbidding her to open it.
