This group, whose theme was widespread in the Hellenistic period figures two gods, side by side, walking together and looking in the same direction. Their respective body seems to merge. Eros, naked, wearing the hair in two braids drooping, slightly ahead of Psyche wearing a robe, crowned with a tiara and leaves. The Young goddess, sometimes represented as a butterfly embodied the human soul. Eros seems to develop wing and lend him his right leg. The correspondence of the two bodies is not fortuitous: it symbolizes the harmony of body and mind, the balance of the soul love, transportation of desire.

Canosa, Hellenistic period.

Clay, traces of polychrome.
