The Runners of Marly - Tales from the Louvre
Once upon a time, Cupid was a very cute child god with wings on his back and a bow. He was also very naughty and shot magical arrows at men and gods. Some of them made people fall in love with him or her, while others scared away those who received them. One day, Apollo, the sun god, mocked him and Cupid had only one idea in mind, to take revenge...
A tale inspired by the Runners of Marly in the Louvre and Ovid's Metamorphoses.
The unpublished illustrations in this book are accompanied by a small educational booklet presenting the original works of art in the Louvre that are used in the tale.
