These cupids were done in the years following a few major incidents, which had occured within only hours of each other, during the evening of Dia de Los Muertos. In order to sort out my feelings while I was recovering, I moved beyond my studies of Dia de Los Muertos to the mythology of Eros, the mischevious son of Venus. I read on theories, such as how Cupid was "cutefied" during Victorian times. C. S. Lewis wrote an excellent book, Til We Have Faces, which does not leave out the darker aspects of the story of Cupid and Psyche. I apprecated that.
