Pier Maria and Bianca Struck by the Arrows of Amor

c. 1460
Golden Room, Castello di Torrechiara, Torrechiara

The first picture in the sequence is the one of Amor shooting arrows on the southeast wall. Pier Maria Rossi has been shot in the breast, and clasps the arrow with both hands. Again drawing his bow, Amor has turned toward Bianca, and in fact she too has been struck with an arrow, but does not appear to notice it.
