Happy Valentine's Day from Cupid

The statue that sits at the center of Piccadilly Square in London is commonly referred to as Eros -- the Greek mythology counterpart to Cupid.

But the statue was actually intended to be Anteros, Eros' brother, so this may or may not be a love bow in the photos below. But it's a lovely statue all the same.

And while this little fellow isn't Cupid either, here's a cherubic angel from the Brompton Cemetery in London.

Happy Valentine's Day!

  1. And what on earth was Anteros supposed to be in charge of? Now I'm going to have to pull out my Greek mythology books. Thanks for the challenge. I love blogs that make me think.
