Statues - Hither & Thither
Yorkshire & Humberside
Cupid and Psychestory originally from Metamorphoses written in the 2nd century AD by Lucius Apuleius Madaurensis (or Platonicus)
Giovanni Maria Benzoni
Marble statue in an octagonal pavillon with glass walls.
In 1862 Cupid and Psyche was purchased by a
syndicate of Harrogate business men and placed
in the gardens of the Spa Room Estate, which
were situated between the modern Ripon Road,
Kings Road and Springfiels Avenue. When the
gardens closed in 1958 for the development of
the exhibition halls the sculpture was put into
storage. In 1989 it was rediscovered, restored,
and put on display in this pavilion. In 2014 further
conservation work was carried out to restore
and clean the sculpture.
