Description: A stone stairway disappears into the clouds and a small red winged putto holds a lighted torch and gazes up into the clouds as if looking for something specific. The child seems unaware of the staircase behind him.. The Italian word comes from the Latin word putus, meaning "boy" or "child"
Putti, in the ancient classical world of art, were winged infants that were believed to influence human lives. Putti are secular and present a non-religious passion. However, in the Baroque period of art, the putto came to represent the omnipresence of God. A putto representing a cupid is also called an amorino.
