Love Conquers All

Amor Vincit Omnia by CaravaggioAmor Vincit Omnia ("Love Conquers All") was painted by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio in 1602. Caravaggio shows Cupid prevailing over all human endeavors: war, music, science, government.

Amor Vincit Omnia shows Amor, wearing dark eagle wings, carrying a bow and arrows and trampling the symbols of warlike and peaceful arts and sciences underfoot. Scattered around are the emblems of human endeavours – violin and lute, armour, coronet, square and compasses, pen and manuscript, bay leaves, and an astral globe, tangled and trampled under Cupid’s foot.

The painting illustrates the line from Virgil's Eclogues “Omnia vincit amor et nos cedamus amori” ("Love conquers all; let us all yield to love!").
