Mirror Case with the God of Love


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The God of Love, crowned and winged, stands in a tree and throws arrows on the two lovers below. The seated man is shown with a hawk, and the kneeling woman, already struck by an arrow, holds a chaplet in her hand for her beloved. The scene has a seven-lobed frame with masks in the spandrels. Four monsters form the corner terminals. The mirror is considerably worn from use.
