Statue of eros piccadilly circus

March 27, Eros, the lithe, winged statue with bow in hand who appears suspended above the swirling traffic at Piccadilly Circus while fountains splash his foot, is back in place again. If, after 18 months' convalescence, Eros, the statue depicting the Greek god of love, appears to have soared somewhat in people's estimation, it is because the statue stands higher than it did before. With 30, people every hour seeing him at this hectically busy crossroads of London, it comes as no surprise that all this attention has turned Eros's head. Now instead of facing Shaftesbury Avenue, as he did in the past, in deference to Victorian philanthropist Lord Shaftesbury in whose honor he was sculptured, Eros has turned himself around. He now faces the Haymarket.

Piccadilly Circus and the Statue of Eros - Bob Speel's Website

Above a bronze fountain, the naked Eros teeters gracefully, almost overbalancing but not quite. This god of carnal and romantic love, both bawdy and beautiful, is perhaps a suitable deity to hover over the West End with its numerous distractions and entertainments, pleasures and indulgences, and ephemeral crowds seeking sometimes innocent amusements, but also sometimes darker and more destructive goals. But why, you might wonder, is a Greek divinity poised in such a place? The statue has a strange and controversial history, a history involving opium wars, heroin addiction, enormous levels of prostitution, naughty World War II servicemen, temperamental fugitive sculptors, puns and ribald word plays, earnest Victorian philanthropists, and outraged calls for Eros to be removed and melted down.

11 Secrets of London's Eros Statue

The Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain , popularly but incorrectly known as "Eros" , is a fountain surmounted by a winged statue of Anteros , located at the southeastern side of Piccadilly Circus in London, England. Moved after World War II from its original position in the centre of the circus, it was erected in —93 to commemorate the philanthropic works of Anthony Ashley Cooper, 7th Earl of Shaftesbury , the Victorian politician and philanthropist , and his achievement in replacing child labour with school education. The fountain overlooks the south-west end of Shaftesbury Avenue , also named for the Earl. Alfred Gilbert 's use of a nude figure on a public monument was controversial at the time of its construction, but it was generally well received by the public. The Magazine of Art described it as "a striking contrast to the dull ugliness of the generality of our street sculpture,
