Cupid is the deity of desire, tenderness, and sensual love in Roman mythology. He is the deity Mars’s son and the goddess Venus’s son. Cupid is usually depicted shooting his bow to encourage romantic love in popular culture, and is frequently used as a symbol of Valentine’s Day. In today’s culture, he has become the personification of love and courting in general. Cupid was the son of Venus (the goddess of love) and Mars in the Roman mythology. In Greek mythology, he was known as Eros and was considered one of the primal gods (though other myths exist as well). Cupid was frequently represented with wings, a bow, and an arrow quiver.
