SIZE - Cameo 19mm x 15mm THE STORY EROS DEPOSES HIS ARMS (quiver and arrows) Cupid the Roman god of Love, has always played a role in the celebration of Romance and is the most famous of all Valentine symbols. As the son of Venus, he is depicted as a mischievous, joyful winged child whose arrows pierce the hearts of his victims causing them to fall in love. Cupido means “desire” and his Greek counterpart Eros, is son of Aphrodite, goddess of Love and Beauty. According to some legends Cupid (as Eros) arose out of Chaos, the beginning of time as vital force of erotic love, the creative urge of everlasting nature and the first born energy and light that is responsible for the coming into being and ordering all things in the cosmos. Cherubs are believed to be his descendants and depicted as lovable winged creatures without arrows or quivers and are symbols of protection, joy and glory.
