Cupid's bow feature on a human lip

The Cupid's bow is a facial feature where the double curve of a human upper lip is said to resemble the bow of Cupid, the Roman god of erotic love. The peaks of the bow coincide with the philtral columns giving a prominent bow appearance to the lip.

The phrase is common in literature, often used related to speech, and therefore the mouth.
