79/366 In your arms

(Paris, August 2015) Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss is a sculpture by Antonio Canova. It is regarded as a masterpiece of Neoclassical sculpture, but shows the mythological lovers at a moment of great emotion, characteristic of the emerging movement of Romanticism. It represents the god Cupid in the height of love and tenderness, immediately after awakening the lifeless Psyche with a kiss. http://bit.ly/1UHLn14
