Amor and Psyche

There are some statues that were widely copied during antiquity such as the Herakles Farnese, the Cnidian Venus and so on - one less known piece however is the so called Amor and Psyche. You can compare the version below to one form Ostia in this post (where you also find a very brief summery of the story behind it).

From a temporary exhibition in Athens, normally to be found in the Vatican museum.
