Cupid, the son of Venus, is in Roman mythology the god of Love. Its attributes are an arc, a quiver and a flower. With either an arrow or a flower, it sends these spikes of desire into the hearts of gods and men. According to mythology, anyone who was touched by the arrows of Cupid fell in love with the first person she saw at that time.
