    I can't believe i was here and saw this sculpture!A sculpture by Antonio Canova depicting Eros reviving Psyche, who was put to sleep forever by inhaling a magic perfume. 1793. Louvre, Paris. I remember my art history professor saying this sculpture is more powerful because their lips are NOT touching! The energy created in that space is electrifying!

    Antonio Canova’s (1757-1822) statue Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss, first commissioned in 1787, exemplifies the Neoclassical devotion to love and emotion. It represents the god Cupid in the height of love and tenderness, immediately after awakening the lifeless Psyche with a kiss, a scene excerpted from Lucius Apuleius’ The Golden Ass.
