A handsome antique valentine depicting Cupid at a shooting range. His bow and arrow rest in his hand as he beams towards the viewer. His arrow has done what no rifleman could - it pieced the heart of the target. Golden dots reveal all of the missed shots made by the rifles now abandoned before him. After all, who could possibly shoot love better than Cupid himself! 18th-19th Century Subjects , Valentine , 3D Stand-up and Pop-up
