Psyche Revived by Cupid's Kiss

Psyche Revived by Cupid's Kiss
sculpted by Antonio Canova

The statue depicts a scene from Roman mythology: the god Cupid looking at Psyche with extreme love and tenderness, right after awakening her from her lifeless sleep by his kiss, as Psyche throws up her arms around his head in affection.
