These cupids were done in the years following a few major incidents I experienced, occuring within mere hours of each other, during an evening of Dia de Los Muertos. In order to sort out my feelings while I was recovering, I moved beyond my studies of Dia de Los Muertos to the mythology of Eros, the mischevious son of Venus. I read about how Cupid was "cutefied" during Victorian times. This led me to an excellent book, Til We Have Faces, by C. S. Lewis.  It includes the darker aspects of the story of Cupid and Psyche, which I could appreciate.
