'Cupid Leaving Psyche' wood block (c.1865)

From the series of woodcuts for the projected edition of 'The Earthly Paradise' c.1865, 'The Story of Cupid and Psyche' (probably number 26 in the series). Designed by Edward Burne-Jones, drawn on the block by William Morris and cut by Lucy Faulkner (according to the handwritten inscription on the back). This block was probably a trial attempt and not used.
