Botanic Gardens, Love Led Them

"Love Led Them" is a bronze sculpture of a Cupid, a young boy with bow and arrows and wings, on a marble plinth set in the central pond of the Pioneer Memorial Garden, in the Royal Botanic Gardens. It was sculpted by Paul Raphael Montford and marks the precise spot of the centre of the dome of the former Garden Palace, a grand exhibition building built in 1879 that burnt down three years later.
