PSYKHE (or Psyche)  the prettiest face by GeaAusten PSYKHE (or Psyche)  the prettiest face by GeaAusten
"PLEASE FAVE AND RUN!" Thankyou :-) !! I really appreciate it :hug:
~~~~~~~~

Watercolour,, pencil, ink and gold leaf and pearl glitter.. I love her.. she just became so pretty! I think she looks like Jane Fonda.. and Brigitte Bardot a bit ! XX :-

) "PSYKHE (or Psyche) was the goddess of the soul, wife of Eros god of love.


She was once a mortal princess whose astounding beauty earned the ire of Aphrodite when men turned their worship from goddess to girl. Aphrodite commanded Eros make Psykhe fall in love with the most hideous of men, but the god himself fell in love with her and carried her away to his secret palace. However Eros hid his true identity, and commanded her never to look upon his face. Psykhe was eventually tricked by her jealous sisters into gazing upon the face of god, and he abandoned her. In her despair, she searched throughout the world for her lost love, and eventually came into the service of Aphrodite. The goddess commanded her perform a series of difficult labours which culminated in a journey to the Underworld. In the end Psykhe was reunited with Eros and the couple wed in a ceremony attended by the gods.

Psykhe was depicted in ancient mosaics as a butterfly winged goddess in the company of her husband Eros. Sometimes a pair of Pyskhai are portrayed, the second perhaps being their daughter Hedone (Pleasure).
