Seller: artancientltd (9,300) 99.6%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 201715611155 An ancient Roman bronze figure of Cupid, god of love, dating to 100 – 300 AD. To the Romans, Cupid was the youngest of all the gods, in a permanent state of childhood, he was careless and impulsive. This wonderful bronze betrays all the impish charm with which the god was associated, the face has just the hint of a mischievous smile as he looks down to his flaming torch, walking leisurely towards us. Above all of course, Cupid was the god of love and desire, and in the flaming torch he carries in his right hand we see a metaphor for the emotion that love inspires, enflaming the heart. That is the power of objects such as this, not just the artistry they display, but the stories and poetry they inspire. Height: 4 inches. Height mounted: 6 inches. Condition: Very good, with small chip to nose and left hand and back left leg. Unrestored and with a beautiful bespoke ebony and bronze stand. Provenance: Found during the excavation of volcanic pumice stone in a quarry at Nickenich in the Rhine Valley, Germany, during the 1950’s. Purchased in 1960 by a German private collector and thence by descent. Authenticity All items are unconditionally guaranteed to be Authentic as described.
