Etched Cupid

02/11/10 – Etched Cupid – Cupid, in Latin he is called Cupido, which stands for desire. He’s a easily recognized image for Valentine’s Day. With angelical wings on his bare torso, he stands up full-length drawing his bow occupied with a lovemaking dart. He’s set up to shoot this pointy dart into the heart and soul of an unaware person to prompt and awaken some amatory love.

This silhouetted form has been engraved into dichroic to attain a bold statement. The dichroic glass bears a black backing then it’s been crowned with clear glass. Fusing a clear cap on the piece contributes more depth and dimension.
