REPRISE: 'Cupid and Psyche' - Antonio Canova

Antonio Canova's 'Cupid and Psyche.' 1796.

Portrayed is the moment when the messsenger of love, Cupid himself, flies down and wakes his own love from eternal slumber -- doing so, naturally, with a kiss.

What else would possibly do?

And you have to see it for real to appreciate how incredibly beautiful it is, and I have.

Psyche has extremely small breasts. Pretty androgenous, really. Homo suspect rating: 7.4/10
