Cupid's Span

Cupid's Span - San Francisco. Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen's Cupid's Span, made of fiberglass and steel, was installed in Rincon Park along the Embarcadero in San Francisco in 2002. The piece resembles Cupid's bow and arrow, drawn, with the arrow and bow partially implanted in the ground; the artists stated that the piece was inspired by San Francisco's reputation as the home port of Eros, hence the stereotypical bow and arrow of Cupid.
