Cupid and Psyche

I love the story of Eros or Cupid and Psyche. Years ago I went to the Caravaggio exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia, and there was a painting of Cupid and Psyche.
I went away to read the myth later and loved it so much I paid another visit to see the painting again and then bought a postcard. I lost the postcard but have recently downloaded it onto my phone.
I recently had serious internal surgery so I made a goddess costume to pass the time and with all the swelling it came in handy and it was summer so bonus points for forward planning. I should upload pics if possible.
Thank you for such an interesting website.
P.S. I always wear a Cupid medallion. I run alot. I think it makes me run faster.
thank you for your lovely comment, it is really an inspiring story. I hope everything went well with your surgery and I wish you a speedy and complete recovery.
As regards seeing the painting and then looking for info about it, that's the spirit I like to see! (Sometimes I'm a little bit sad when my daughter sees new things but is not interested in finding out more about them).
Please send us pictures of your goddess costume and we'll feature them here (by the way, what goddess did you choose? Maybe Psyche?) - I am sooo curious!
A big hug,
