Handmade greek ceramic plate depicting Eros, the Greek god of love, with a fawn
 

Handmade greek ceramic plate depicting Eros, the Greek god of love, with a fawn. A lovely souvenir from Greece!

Eros, also known as Cupid, was the Greek god of love and sex, friendship and liberty.
 According to the Greek Mythology Eros was one of the children of Aphrodite and Ares and, and sibling of the Erotes, a group of winged love gods. He is considered as the god of love, whose mischievous interventions in the affairs of gods and mortals cause bonds of love to form, often illicitly.

Ultimately, in the later satirical poets, he is represented as a blindfolded child, the precursor to the chubby Renaissance Cupid, whereas in early Greek poetry and art, Eros was depicted as a young adult male who embodies sexual power, and a profound artist. The god is usually depicted carrying a lyre or bow and arrow or accompanied by deers and fawns, dolphins, flutes, roosters, roses, and torches.

Eros is also thought to be part of a triad of gods that played roles in homoerotic relationships, along with Heracles and Hermes, who bestowed qualities of beauty (and loyalty), strength, and eloquence, respectively, onto male lovers.

The tondo of this particular plate is decorated with a depiction of Eros accompanied by a fawn. A wavy ornament pattern and a serie of olive leaves complete the decoration of the plate's surface.
