Cupid and Psyche is a story that concerns the overcoming of obstacles to the love between Psyche "Soul" or "Breath of Life" and Cupid "Desire" or Amor "Love", Greek Eros ’′Ερως and their ultimate union in a sacred marriage. Cupid's mother, the goddess Venus, envious of the beauty of her son's beloved, dispatched Psyche into the Underworld to fetch a vessel containing Proserpina's beauty ointment, forbidding her to open it. Psyche could not resist looking inside the flask and immediately fell into a deep sleep. Only the kiss of Cupid can return her to life. Cupid realized he cannot live without her, rushes to her side to revive her, but quickly flies off again before she sees him. He hurries to Mount Olympus where he entreats Jupiter to allow them to be together eternally. Jupiter agrees to Cupid's plea and Psyche is brought to Mount Olympus where the two lovers' wedding is celebrated with a banquet, and the bride is granted immortality.
