The more research I did on Eros (Cupid), the more I fell in love with him. He’s one of the love children of Aphrodite and Ares. This particular sculpture I absolutely love…it’s Eros and Psyche, his wife.
I think what I love most about this is that he’s not a fat, naked baby. He’s strong and beautiful – and did you get a load of those wings? Freakin awesome.
In the book, Dita and Eros are good friends and close allys, even though Dita and Psyche don’t exactly get along. In fact, Eros was sent to punish her for being so beautiful when he fell in love with her. Not Dita’s favorite. But Eros is charming and very witty…and usually naked.
