Cemetery Monuments

Collection by K!m


Percy Bysse Shelley once wrote, “the cemetery is an open space among the ruins, covered in winter with violets and daisies. It might make one in love with death, to think that one should be buried in so sweet a place.”

Έρωτας και Ψυχή - Cupid and Psyche

Βλέποντας η Αφροδίτη ότι μια θνητή την ξεπερνά σε ομορφιά έφυγε ο Όλυμπος κάτω από τα πόδια της. Δεν κάθισε με σταυρωμένα χέρια και άστυλε τον Έρωτα να σημαδεύει με τα μολυβένια βέλη του κάθε άνδρα που πλησίαζε την Ψυχή ώστε να μην την ποθεί κανένας. Κάποια στιγμή ο Έρωτας εκτελώντας τις εντολές…
