Meaning the phrase "Love Conquers All" the phrase was used in the roman times when Caravaggio created a painting between 1601 and 1603 for Marchese Vincenzo Giustiniani, one of the wealthiest men in Rome.
The painting of 'Amor Vincit Omnia' shows Amor (the Roman Cupid) wearing dark eagle wings, half-sitting on or perhaps climbing down from what appears to be a table. Scattered around are the emblems of all human endeavours – violin and lute, armour, coronet, square and compasses, pen and manuscript, bay leaves, an astral globe, tangled and trampled under Cupid’s foot.
