Happy Valentine's Day

Antonio CANOVA - 1757 -1822,  
Psyché ranimée par le baiser de l'Amour (Psyche revived by love's kiss) 
Musée  du Louvre

"Celestial Cupid, her famed son, advanced,
Holds his dear Psyche sweet entranced,
After her wandering labours long,
Till free consent the gods among
Make her his eternal bride;
And from her fair unspotted side
Two blissful twins are to be born,
Youth and Joy; so Jove hath sworn."

Comus (1634), John Milton
