This Cupid statue was originally made of porcelain by Etienne Falconet was the Director of the sculpture workshop at the Royal Sevres Porcelain Factory. Cupid is the confidant of Venus, for whom he keeps the secrets of her love life. He is on the verge of taking an arrow out of his quiver with his left hand. He is called "Menacing", which stirs the imagination to reflect upon the dangerous nature of love.
The artist Falconet, who was filling an order from Madame de Pompadour, had named the marble model of this sculpture "Cupid".
The first soft bisque porcelain statuette of this Cupid was created by the Sevres Porcelain Factory in 1758 and is currently displayed in "Cite de la Ceramique" Museum in Sevres, France.
