Once upon a time, Aphrodite realised that people would rather worship the wondrous beauty of no goddess Psyche, and saw her altars standing silent and empty, as men were flocking to meet Psyche in the flesh. Green with envy as she was, she called on her son, Eros (also known as Cupid, the Romans’ version) to avenge the hated mortal for the unbearable sense of negligence she felt devastated by. “Inflame her heart with love, but with a burning love for a mere brute”. Ever too ready to play his mischievous tricks, Eros set off for his labor of love.
That’s what Eros was all about: love burning, love boundless, love desperate, love fatal, love lifelong, love passionate, love and devotion, love and cosmogony, love, love, love... No place on earth could have been a better cradle for love than the land of myths.
