Stephan Gold, the master maker:
“Here in our gallery we are deeply submerged in the theater and Chiaroscuro of Caravaggio's art. They look absolutely stunning on our hand-made ceramic tile tableau's. His masterful use of light and dark is being beautifully enhanced by the high gloss ceramic tiles.”

Amor Vincit Omnia is seen as one of Caravaggio’s masterpieces, painted in 1602 for Vincenzo Giustiniani. He was a regular commissioner of Caravaggio’s art and a big fan. We can immediately recognise Cupid, the god of Love, by his wings and the two arrows he holds. Scattered around him we see musical instruments, military gear, books and drawing equipment. Above this stands Cupid: Love Conquers All. Interestingly, Cupid is not shown as an idealised god, but as a realistic human boy.
In a playful and sensual pose he smiles at the viewer, his wing lightly touching his thigh and the folds in his skin clearly visible, making him almost tangible. The objects beneath him are also not the usual obstacles lovers might encounter, they are civilised values of music, art and valiance. Caravaggio might be trying to say that the power of earthly, sexual love triumphs over those civilised notions.
