Eros and Psyche


β€œEros in Greek mythology, was the Greek god of love. His Roman counterpart was Cupid (“desire”). Some myths make him a primordial god, while in other myths, he is the son of Aphrodite…

…In Greek mythology, Psyche was the deification of the human soul. She was portrayed in ancient mosaics as a goddess with butterfly wings (because psyche was also the Ancient Greek word for ‘butterfly’). The Greek word psyche literally means “soul, spirit, breath, life or animating force”.”

I’ve been wanting to paint these two for a long time. This is my other favourite Greek myth, joint first with the myth of Icarus. For fun and practice. Enjoy!
