What is the Meaning of Cupid and Psyche?
The story of Cupid and Psyche is taken from the Latin novel by Lucius Apuleius. The story is very popular in the art world. Cupid’s mother Venus was jealous of the beauty of her son’s beloved. And, the goddess Venus sent Psyche to the underworld. Meanwhile, the goddess Venus gave Psyche a container and forbade her to open it. Then, Psyche couldn’t help looking in the flask and fell asleep immediately. And, only Cupid’s kiss could bring her back to life.
