Wingless Cupid

25 a.C. - 15. Bronze

This Augustean-era classicist version of a late Hellenistic Eros (c. 100 B. C.) once carried a metal torch in each hand. It is an example of the so-called “dumb servants”. In this case, the Cupid probably served to illuminate the bedroom of an affluent Roman’s mansion.
