Jewel inspired by the Cupid depicted in the painting La Primavera (The Spring) by Sandro Botticelli (ca. 1482) exhibited at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. In Botticelli’s masterpiece, Cupid, the god of love, is depicted as blindfolded mythology in order to be able to launch his arrows that make you fall in love without looking at the striker. In the painting Cupid is about to shoot with his bow an arrow directed towards Grace that the classical interpretation identifies with Castitas, or Chastity. The Grace has its gaze turned towards Mercury, who in turn with his characteristic staff, the Caduceus, is chasing gray clouds to protect the garden, and therefore the season of Spring, from bad weather.
