STORY :Once upon a time there was a King with three daughters. They were all beautiful, but by far the most beautiful was the youngest, Psyche. She was so beautiful that people began to neglect the worship of Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. Venus was very jealous, and asked her son Cupid (the boy with the arrows) to make Psyche fall in love with a horrible monster. When he saw how beautiful she was, Cupid dropped the arrow meant for her and pricked himself, and fell in love..The Greek version of the myth of Psyche and Cupid (also known as Eros) is known to have existed in Grecian art as early at the fourth century BC. Psyche's Father AKA Rex depicted her as he looks on to the marriage of forbidden Love.
