Art Feature

The second of my random features of art I have found and loved! When searching about Aristotle’s ‘psyche’ or soul, I came across this DeviantART.com drawing of Eros and Psyche by ‘dahlig.

Eros_Psyche_by_blackeri

It’s so well painted that it looks more like a photograph, in my opinion.
The Greek story of Eros and Psyche tells of the God of Love who himself fell in love with a mortal princess, Psyche, inciting jealousy from his mother Aphrodite, whom everybody was saying was second to this beautiful princess. She ordered Eros to make sure no suitor ever married the princess, but the god instead took her away to his world to be his bride on the condition that she never look at his face.
The story is supposedly what inspired Beauty and the Beast.
