Cupidon (French for Cupid), by William-Adolphe Bouguereau, 1875.

Cupid, also called Amor (Latin for love), is the god of desire in Roman mythology. He fired golden arrows at people to make them fall in love, and lead arrows to make people fall out of love. He was mainly drawn as a cherub but he might have looked like a normal teenager. He had large feathery wings which he used to fly around in the sky and mainly shot people with his love arrows by flying above them.
