This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Cupid and Psyche designed from a painting by John Roddam Spencer Stanhope shows a Greek mythology depiction of Psyche being totally unaware that Cupid is coming up from behind to shoot her with one of his arrows. As a result of this, Psyche will not recognize her own beauty and will attach herself to the lowest most unattractive of mortal men not realizing the depth of her beauty. The shooting of the arrow is a punishment from Cupid's mother Venus who was jealous of Psyche's beauty. Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
