Sandstone Sculptures

These four small cupids are very adaptable and can even keep company with athletes and gods in the courtyard. I suspect they are putti, most likely Renaissance period, used perhaps as garden sculpture, decorative. I doubt they are Greek or Roman eras. The Roman putti (Roman Puttus) were usually used in reggifestone holding garlands and in reggistemma flanking cartouches. They may not be significant as the bronzes, but are quite delightful in the style of Donatello. I did research on putti and discovered they are surprisingly interesting little figures and are not cupids.
