London - Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain ("Eros")
About our rating system. When he finished his legendary fountain in the middle of Piccadilly Circus in , sculptor Alfred Gilbert thought the playful maritime-themed sculptures on its base would be celebrated. Audiences have minds of their own. They responded to the archer god on top. But they even got that bit of admiration wrong—they thought he represented Eros, god of erotic love, when Gilbert had actually intended Anteros, god of requited love.
