“Cupid’s Span” is on the San Francisco Embarcadero waterfront and was created by sculptors Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen. Every day this 60 foot high fiberglass and stainless steel sculpture is surrounded by bike riders, walkers, joggers, business workers, and tourists enjoying the fresh winds and sparkling views of the Bay.
Personally I have never been moved by the act of shooting an arrow into a heart, so I do not feel this sculpture emanating with lust and romance. But that’s exactly the point. Throughout history humans have extolled on the bliss of love. From Roman mythology and Saint Valentine to the time of the Sochi Olympics, love has been the lively pulse of human existence. But it’s always been different strokes for different folks.
I hope you have a great day celebrating love in whatever way makes your heart sing….
