Stroll along San Francisco’s waterfront at the Embarcadero and you’re liable to see any number of interesting sites. One of the more striking is “Cupid’s Span,” a 60-foot, fiberglass-and-steel sculpture of an arrow at Rincon Park.
Erected in 2002, it is the creation of noted American sculpture artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, who have said that the bow and arrow of Cupid design was inspired by San Francisco’s reputation as the home port of Eros, the Greek god of love and reputed son of Aphrodite.
When in San Francisco, be sure to check out this arresting piece of public art, as well as the other cool things to be found along the Embarcadero. Until then, here’s Cupid’s Span, from every angle.
