Antonio Canova’s statue Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss, first commissioned in 1787 represents the god Cupid after awakening the lifeless Psyche with a kiss. Their feelings for one another shows in their body language. Has a kiss ever left you feeling the same way?

  1. I am so thrilled with the love story of Cupid and Psyche. It is my favorite in mythology. How their love transcends the law of heaven and earth.

  2. I only heard about them via wkipedia after I’d taken the photo. I love their pose and the affection they show each other.
