Psyche

Model: Steph Pez

The myth of Psyche and Eros has been one that I have had a love/hate relationship with for years. Psyche is a beautiful princess, she is so lovely that the people of her city start worshiping her instead of Aphrodite. This makes the goddess angry and she sends her son to marry Psyche to a monster. Her grief-struck parents leave the girl in chains in the wilderness to meet her husband. And this is where we find our Psyche today. The tale continues and deals with the dangers of curiosity and jealous, along with a mix of determination and self-pity. But that’s a story for another day.
