Erotica

George Rennie's Carved Cupid

No one did erotica like the Greeks and Romans, and this sculpture by George Rennie depicts the boy-gods responsible for the birth of erotica itself. An incredibly rendered marble statue of Cupid and a young man is entitled "Cupid Rekindling the Torch of Hymen," circa 1831. We'll leave the rest of the myth to you.
