Cupid and Psyche
by Godet

This Cupid and Psyche sculpture by Godet depicts the famous lovers embraced for eternity in a sculpture. This tragic tale of vengeful deities and star-crossed lovers is as well-known as the winged Cupid depicted in this sculpture. He holds his naked lover close as she gazes up at him adoringly. Indoor sculptures can be used to tell a story, and this one tells the tale of two lovers in one still image. In Greek mythology, the story goes that Psyche was a mortal that was very beautiful, that Venus the God of love was very jealous of her. Cupid, the God of Love, fell in love with Psyche, but she was not allowed to look at him. When she disobeyed, he left her. She searched so hard trying to find Cupid by doing all kinds of difficult tasks for the Venus successfully, that they allowed her to be with Cupid and made her a goddess.Godet's remarkable "Cupid and Psyche" was first exhibited at the Paris Salon des Beaux Arts in 1898. Inspiration for this work came from a painting by W. Bouguereau. Rock formations at the feet of the figures are leaning back to counterbalance the forward thrust of their bodies. Cupid's arms are protectively enfolding his love as they prepare to fly to his secret castle. Legend has it he would visit her nightly there, but Psyche's curiosity resulted in an abrupt end to that arrangement. This beautiful sculpture of "Cupid and Psyche" is cast by the talented artisans in our foundry from the finest 100% American bronze. The sculpture is mounted onto a marble base, stands an impressive 31" tall, and is signed "H Godet" in the bronze. It is finished with deep, rich multi-color patinas applied under very high heat so that it has permanently fused into the bronze itself. This is a top quality work of art made to the highest standards. This exquisite sculpture is hand made to order especially for you; please allow approx. 3 weeks for completion and delivery. An excellent gift for those special newlyweds or as an Anniversary or Valentine's Day present.
