Bernini - Damned Soul (self portrait)

Bernini_Apollo_and_Daphne The story begins with Apollo gloating with pride after just having slain Python. Teasing Aphrodite’s son Eros, Apollo says: “Are arms like these for children to employ?” Eros replies to Apollo that he will conquer him, and does so by shooting two arrows, one, golden and sharp to “make the lover bold,” pierces Apollo’s chest, the other, blunt and tipped with lead, attempts Daphne, and “drives her desire away.”
