Do you see a fat, cherubic, baby with a quiver full of arrows and a diaper full of… love? But this adorable little imp has been called many names, been portrayed in many ways, and been known in as many ages throughout history. There are many cultures with their own origin stories, but the ones we most closely associated with the Cupid we know and love today are those of the Romans and Greeks. Cupid is, quite literally, the child of the goddess of love, Venus. In classical Greek and Roman art, Cupid Eros is a slender, winged young boy, but later artistic depictions of the god show him starting to eat more Souvlaki and getting increasingly chubbier.
Just as Coco Chanel had her little black dress, Cupid has his trusty quiver and set of arrows. Say what you will about the diaper, but the kid knows how to accessorize. One with a barbed golden tip to make people fall in love, and one with a lead, or silver, blunted tip to make someone fall out of love, or even hate a person. Cupid had the divine power of using these arrows on both mortals and gods, and use them he did. Which brings us to…. Of all the forces in the world, love just may be the mightiest of all. According to mythology, the god Apollo found out the power of love first hand one day after bragging about how big and strong and cool he was to Cupid after a battle.
Hey Cupid, those are some dumb arrows you got. You should leave the fighting to the big boys like me. Just as Apollo is struck, this hot piece Daphne walks by. Apollo, hit by the golden arrow, falls in love with Daphne instantly and starts chasing her. Unfortunately, Daphne wants nothing to do with him. Thanks Cupid. Her dad listens and turns her into a sick, gorgeous laurel tree.
We all know Cupid can make people fall in and out of love, but did you know he was once in love himself? In this tale, Cupid is a little older, a young man, so the idea of him in romantic love is a bit more palatable than picturing a chubby baby falling in love with a lady. Venus starts to miss all the attention and altar sacrifices, so she sends down her son, Cupid, to the unlucky beautiful girl, Psyche, fall in love with a gross monster. Cupid begins to visit Psyche in dark every night but tells her she must never look at his face.
Which she obviously does, so Cupid gets upset and leaves. Psyche searches everywhere for her mystery lover and finally asks Venus to help her find him. First, Psyche has to sort a bunch of grain. No problem. Then she has to steal some fleece. For the last task, Psyche is sent with a box to the underworld to get some beauty from. She makes it to the underworld, gets the box of beauty, and all she has to do is not look in it, and bring it to Venus. So she opens the box. Inside is a sleeping potion that knocks her out. Jupiter turns Psyche immortal so she and Cupid can live happily ever after.
Naked because love has nothing to hide. For any and all of these reasons, Cupid is nakkie. So why do we see him in greeting cards and classroom decorations wearing a diaper? Because this is America and the only thing we like bald is our eagles. Or by hiding in a laurel tree until February 15th….
It's like visiting the museum with a close friend who just happens to know all the best stories, secrets and gossip. Glad to hear it. So do we. Picture Cupid in your head. The conversation went something like this: Apollo: Hey Cupid, those are some dumb arrows you got. Grabs his man-parts intimidatingly Cupid: Um, Apollo, ever heard of heartbreak? The worst shit ever? Apollo: What? Gets struck in the heart with a golden arrow Just as Apollo is struck, this hot piece Daphne walks by.
For the last task, Psyche is sent with a box to the underworld to get some beauty from the queen of the underworld. Cool, Now What About the Diaper? Buy Tickets Learn More.Is cupid male or female
