Flying Eros, 2nd century BCE, Myrina production. Traces of paint, brown skin, pink drape, crown on the head. Musée d'Art et d'Histoire (Musée du Cinquantenaire, Brussels, Belgium). Made with CapturingReality.

This example originally had wings attached to the back. It was made to be suspended: the front foot pointed out and could not have supported the figure.
