Eros

Eros Leaning on a Plinth – from the Cabinet of Antiquities of Sir William Hamilton

After a 2019 in the spirit of Eros — according to the spiritual significance of numbers, the numerology energy represented by the number 2019 resonates with creative self-expression, relationships, optimism, and inspiration —, the following two years were marked by fear, isolation and masked kisses — as strongly recommended by some caring doctor.

A long forced retirement for our little putto with bow and arrow, who for some time, were probably already experiencing a season of disappointment and frustration, given the short or poor effectiveness of the magic potion contained in its tips.

In Greek mythology, Eros is the Greek god of sensual love and desire — his Roman counterpart was Cupid. Some myths make him a primordial god, while in other myths, he is the son of Aphrodite. He is one of the winged love gods, Erotes. But in the last times our god became a blindfolded child a little mistreated by some artists, and almost completely ignored by ourselves, maybe because of the frantic automatism of these days. But it doesn’t justify any of this. Of course, times have changed, we have less and less sex, masturbation — practical and mental — reigns! But from there it is a far cry from reducing the poor little angel to a mere freakshow.

All that’s left is to hope for a breakout from this humiliating torpor. After all, the ultimate goal of our bodies is to guarantee the continuation of the species. By reproducing themselves.
