Cupid's Span

You may have caught a glimpse of this magnificent work of art in a recent post of mine, but I thought it was fitting to make it the centerpiece this time around since I find it so interesting.  This creation sits along The Embarcadero in San Francisco, near the Bay Bridge (which you can see in the distance).  I think it is pretty cool, and it is definitely large when you are up close.

From the web: "Cupid's Span" by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, was built in 2003 along the Rincon Park area. Resembling Cupid's bow and arrow with the arrow implanted in the ground, the statue symbolizes the place where Tony Bennett "left his heart".
