Eros was the Greek symbol of love and desire. He shot magical golden arrows into the hearts of mortals and immortals, spreading physical desire as well as numbness and pain.
Eros was usually depicted as a beautiful and very clever little boy with wings.
Eros himself was deeply in love with the Greek goddess Psyche, the goddess who embodied the human emotions. Psyche was famous for her divine beauty, which was said to be even greater than the beauty of Aphrodite. People from all over the world came to Psyche's palace to see her up close, bringing offerings and strewing flowers in the streets whenever she came out.
