Awakened with a kiss
“This sculpture by Antonio Canova recreates the moment at which Psyche awakens from her deathly sleep by the kiss of Eros. The dynamic sculpture conveys a deep sense of love, passion and energy as Eros sweeps from the sky to awaken Psyche from her slumber. Psyche throws up her arms elegantly to receive Eros’ kiss.” –Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss by Antonio Canova 1787. Louvre, Paris
