The sculpture done by James Anderson displays the chase of love. Apollo has been struck by Cupid’s love arrow and has set his eyes upon Daphne, a nymph. Once Apollo has been able to reach Daphne, she has called out for help from her father. In this sculpture you see Daphne transforming into a tree to escape the hold of Apollo, and if you look closely he isn’t physically touching her, but has grasped the tree. The emphasis used in Daphne’s finger tips draws the viewer to see her morphing into a tree. Anderson captures movement in this sculpture with Apollo’s cloth draping in the wind, and Daphne’s hair flying up while trying to escape the grasp of Apollo’s touch.
