Marble Cupid

DSCF4092.JPG

This sculpture, in "zuccherino" marble is French and was made in about 1860. It shows Cupid with his hands bound behind his back. In Roman mythology his mother, Venus, as a last resort, ties his hands and confiscates his bow to stop him making so much trouble with the mortals down on Earth.
