Cupid and Psyche Salt Scrub
François Gérard brings a story from the Metamorphoses to life, immortalizing the subjects Cupid, god of love, and his human counterpart, Psyche, in oil and canvas. The painting is an ancient retelling of Venus’ ire toward the mortal woman Psyche, who was so beautiful that her suitors worshiped her in Venus’ sted. Enraged, Venus dispatched her son, Cupid, to enact her revenge. Armed with an arrow of sensuous love intended to cause Psyche to fall for a beast, Cupid instead falls deeply in love with Psyche when he scratches himself with the arrow first. The painting symbolizes Psyche’s sexual awakening as she recieves Cupid’s first kiss. Themes of divine and human unity are not out of the viewer’s grasp as the painting depicts a private moment that all lovers long to experience. Love is not untouchable in Gérard’s depiction, as both subjects are lost in a moment of erotic desire.
Cupid and Psyche is a passionate embrace of sweet Apple, the forbidden fruit of love, sensual Rose, for successful love spells, and Musk, to ward against loneliness.
