Symbols - What does heaven look like
The Roman god Cupid symbolically represents masculine love. The Greek equivalent are the Erotes, not Eros. Eros personifies the function of Divine Love. Aphrodite/Venus [female] and Cupid/Erotes [male] represent the functions of love that we possess ourselves.
The Greek symbolism of masculine love was more sophisticated than that of the Romans. Cupid was portrayed by the Romans as a mischievous child, later on, personifications made him more of an irresponsible adolescent. This child wielded arrows which delivered desire, obsession, lust, but also romantic love and rejected love - thus symbolically the functions of Cupid and the Erotes were similar. Cupid was also representative of sexual intercourse, he too like Venus, was worshipped as a fertility deity.
