The Cupid's Kiss Urn shows Psyche being revived and saved by cupid's kiss. This masterpiece of Neoclassical sculpture, shows the mythological lovers at a moment of great emotion, characteristic of the emerging movement of Romanticism in the last 18th century. It represents the god Cupid in the height of love and tenderness, immediately after awakening the lifeless Psyche with a kiss. This beautiful sculpture was originally sculpted by Antonio Canova.
The urn is hand made in the USA of fine rich alder and hand painted black. Since the art is not permanently attached to the urn base, many of our customers keep the art and wood urn together for a period of time. When the time comes, they place the urn base into a casket with a loved one that has passed, or bury the urn base. The art is kept as a family heirloom. Also, they have indicated they wished to remove the name plate and keep with the art, which can be easily done.
