Review

The figure of Psyche holding torch and butterfly is the subject of this bisque statue by the parisian Dione & Baury manufactory. In ancient Greece, Psyche was a princess of great beauty and goddess of the soul. She felt in love with Eros (Cupid), Aphrodite's son. She is often depicted with an oil lamp and her attribute is the butterfly. Here, Psyche is elegantly dressed in a flowing tunic that reveals the shapes of her body. She wears a high belt and sandals decorated with Medusa head. Her sophisticated hairstyle is raised in a bun, supported by a tiara. Marked underneath with the anchor mark of Dione & Baury in Paris (registered in 1876).
