Playback in Carrara marble from Love and Psyche. There famous statue of Canova, Italian artist of neoclassicism, Built in 1781 - 1793, is kept in the Museo del Louvre, Paris.
Psyche, a beautiful girl who cannot find a husband, becomes the attraction of all the neighboring peoples who offer her sacrifices and call her Venus (the Aphrodite). The divinity, knowing the existence of Psyche, jealous for the usurping name, sends his son Cupid (or Eros, Love) because he makes her fall in love with the ugliest and most miserly man on Earth and is covered by the shame of this relationship, but the god misses his sights and the arrow of love hits his foot instead and he falls madly in love with the girl.
In this beautiful sculpture the god Love (Cupid) kisses the mortal Psyche in one of the greatest stories of love and passion, told by the Latin writer Apuleius.
A perfect love gift for someone special.
