(plaster original by Thorvaldsen) In this relief we see a winged Psyche distributing small angelic figures known as cupids, symbolising love. Psyche gives them to women and men, young and old. There is the young woman kneeling in adoration of her cupid. There is the woman who embraces and kisses her cupid and the woman who has lost interest in hers. There is the man who is too tired to take an interest in his cupid, and there is the old man who stretches out for his without being able to reach it. The relief is based on an ancient model.

About the author:
Thorvaldsens Museum opened on 18 September 1848 and was the first public museum building in Denmark. The characteristic museum building was built to exhibit the extensive life’s work of the sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) and today still looks more or less as it did when it opened over 150 years ago. Thorvaldsens Museum also contains Thorvaldsen's drawings and sketches for sculptures and reliefs. In addition Thorvaldsen was a passionate collector, so the museum also exhibits his extensive collections of paintings from his own time and collections of artworks and objects from Greek, Roman and Egyptian antiquity. The museum also shows changing exhibitions that go into greater depth with aspects of the permanent collections, including contemporary art.
