Cupid & Psyche

Jan 29, 2009



I thought this would be fun to post as it's nearing Valentines Day :) Cupid & Psyche, the famous lovers from Greek and Roman mythology. Psyche was a beautiful mortal woman, so beautiful it made the goddess Venus (Aphrodite) jealous. Venus commanded her son Cupid, (Eros) the god of love to make her fall in love with a beast. Instead Cupid falls in love with Psyche on his own. Unable to face Venus again he steals Psyche away... she eventually becomes immortal, and of course gets those pretty butterfly wings!
