Cupid – Be Careful of his Arrows!
Today we celebrate Valentine’s Day with it often
represented by the mythical icon Cupid. Cupid’s origin
dates back to both Roman and Greek Mythology.
To the Romans Cupid was an innocent boy where he
was considered a lesser god to the great Olympus. He
was also called Amor, the god of love. Cupid is often
represented by a blind folded winged boy (a cherub) to
represent “love is blind”. They say
he was born from a Sliver Egg with
his mother being the lovely Venus,
goddess of love.
In Greek Mythology, Cupid was
the god Eros. He is represented as older, in female or
male form. He is said to carry two types of arrows, one Venus (Aphrodite)
with a sharp golden point, and the other with a blunt
tip of lead. One wounded by the golden arrow is filled with uncontrollable
desire leading to lust and terrible deeds, the blunt lead tip leads to the
desire to flee…to be alone.
The stories of Cupid are known well in both art and mythology. We hope
you enjoyed our story. Let us know if we can help you, a friend or loved
one. Happy Valentine’s Day!
