THE WORLD OF EROS




My Eros

Eros has a bow
and a quiver filled with arrows.
By dint of these arrows
he wounds anybody
who obstructs his passage.
In heaven, on Earth
and in the Hades
Indeed, he doesn’t spare
even his own mother ...


And what did Friedrich Nietzsche say about Eros :-) ?

Christianity gave Eros poison to drink;
he did not die of it
but degenerated
into vice.

The picture above is a pen drawing with red and blue Indian ink. It is the first one of a series to some stories of the Greek Mythology.

I like your idea about Jacky Castor. Cant wait to see what you have in mind hehehe! Like my new profile pic? A very dear friend of mine did it for me *wink*

Of course I do like your new profile pic, because you are a very handsome guy :-), my dear Brad!!!
Now we'll see if Jacky will be inspirated by this idea I've had! I think you both would be fancy models for me, but all depends now on Jacky and on you. I think that you should make the first move for a virtual relationship between each of you, for Jacky is a bit more introverted than you :-)!

Thanks, Prmod! OK, I'll give an introduction to Friedrich Nietzsche in the next post, because there there is not any philosopher, that influenced the intellectual life of three generations so very much than he ...

the way that you use red and blue indian ink really gives the picture an air of hot erotica and Nietzshe's words are spot on.

Influence he did! and i have a feeling he will continue to influence the generations to come too! :)

-----------------
It's interesting that I didn't appreciate that I was in the wake of Nietzsche's "ideas-ship" when I drew this picture, but as you know, the subconsciousness is working automaticly :-)

I see it with great pleasure, Prmod! THAT IS obviuosly Nietzsche's secret that he is able to make enthusiastic young people also today! Now I've found the title for my next post too, thank you Prmod :-)!
