Inspired by Adolphe-William Bouguereau's famous 1895 painting.
At a dramatic 65cm tall, this three-dimensional sculpture depicts the romantic tale of Cupid's 'Abduction of Psyche'.
Its fine detail, from softly draping fabric to muscular human forms, is cast in designer resin and finished in paint to look like bronze to showcase a timeless sculpture celebrating the triumph of love.
I suspect this is a copy but I haven't yet found another one like it. Sculpture yes but not with the lamp fittings! I paid $50 at a second-hand shop.
Maker's mark says 'rosa' @1995. The '@' might not be @ but a circle about that size.
