Eros lost his heart to the mortal Psyche but constantly feared for her safety. He made Psyche swear that she would never look fully upon his face, only visiting her at night. Psyche's family insisted that Eros must be a grotesque and dangerous monster.
As an homage to the young God Eros, this labor-of-love series as featured on Beautifulmag consists of newly-redesigned images from photographer Robert Mercer, Jr., visionary of the Ripped Genes calendars, and graphic artist Manny Fontanilla! May the spirit of Cupid's arrow fill your hearts this Valentine's Day!
