Eros, Sefton Park, Liverpool.

Eros, the god of love, son of Aphrodite had the power to make anyone fall in love by shooting off an arrow from his magic bow. This statue of him stands in Sefton Park, Liverpool and, according to some has magic powers. Couples who go to see this fine work of art on Valentine’s day, and also before noon on the day after the last day of March have been known to see an arrow fly and they fall instantly in love. The Eros in Sefton Park is taken from the same mould as the more famous one in Piccadilly Circus, but, to my knowledge nobody has seen an arrow fly from his bow there!

Must be the Scouse magic that makes the arrow appear from nowhere

Excellent shot Rod, you were lucky the sky was so blue it makes Eros stand out better. Interesting about the arrow :)

Excellent rendering of the statue, but having included the arrow, perhaps this should have been sent in on April 1. Then again you may have something even more appropriate.......
