The myth of Psyche and Eros is probably one of the most beautiful Greek myths; it has been told and retold in several different versions and it has inspired artists all over the world.

The  archetype of the Greek myth of Psyche and Eros appears regularly in movies and artifacts even today.

Psyche was a woman gifted with extreme beauty and grace, one of the mortal women whose love and sacrifice for her beloved God Eros earned her immortality

The story is too long to relate on these pages but a visit to Wikipedia and either Eros and Psyche or Cupid and Psyche tells the whole story.

Norman was always reading about the myths especially from the Iliad or the Odyssey and drew and painted many works throughout his lifetime
