    OIL PAINTING : Sleeping Venus and Cupid

          In this painting by Poussin are depicted Venus (the Greek Aphrodite), goddess of love, and her son Cupid (the Greek Eros), whose sharp arrows and flaming torches aroused the passions of both gods and mortals. The interaction between Cupid and his mother could also be a metaphor for various aspects of love, while the adulterous affair between Venus and Mars, the god of war, could signify the capacity of love to subdue violence.
