Powerful Stone

Fashion is art. But it’s rare that the two are so closely related. Cupid and Psyche by Antonio Canova sits in the Louvre, and when I saw it there, in the marble flesh, I got chills. It was one of those encounters with art that brings tears to your eyes. I think we forget how powerful art can be. I love the parallel between this photo and the great and beautiful sculpture.
