Antonio Canova


Recommended Posts

I love marble statues. And one of my friends introduced me to the works of Antonio Canova:


I love this one. Why? Hidden under dry wit, control, flirtation, silliness, and intellect, I have this huge, scary, gigantic romantic streak.

This is simply stunning. It is sooooo romantic and gives such a feeling of softness and weighlessness. Nothing can weigh the lovers down. Their tender moment is captured in stone and will last forever.

Thanks for sharing that, Jenna. I must make it to the Louve one day and see it up close. It is gorgeous.

What is the title of this statue? Please don't tell me it's "The Angel of the Lord Informing Mary that she is to be the Mother of God's Child." :-)

LOL :D I think it's called Cupid and Psyche. The joining of heart and mind. Yes, I want to see it in person.
