Éros/ἔρως

Éros (ἔρως érōs) means “love, mostly of the sexual passion.” – Wikipedia

Late for Valentine’s Day but oh well. Business school.

This painting is based on the true story of Rodrigo Borgia, Pope Alexander VI and his many mistresses. His un-popelike behavior made the name Borgia synonymous with libertine. This composition is a combination of Jude Law in The Young Pope, Monica Bellucci, and the Japanese manga, Cesare (based on the youth of Rodrigo’s son).
