    The taskmaster in the story of Cupid and Psyche was Cupid's mother, the love goddess Venus or Aphrodite. Venus had never liked Psyche, so the opportunity of putting her to a series of tests gave Venus a chance to demand the seemingly impossible. Psyche and Amor, also known as Psyche Receiving Cupid's First Kiss (), by François Gérard: a symbolic butterfly hovers over Psyche in a moment of innocence poised before sexual awakening.

    " every daughter contains her mother in herself and every daughter her mother, and every woman extends backwards into her mother and forwards into her daughter.". This is an inhuman task because there are so many millions of seeds. If she fails, then the goddess will kill her. Despite beginning her task Psyches soon becomes distraught and despairing at the enormity of what she knows she can not do she simply sits and weeps, as she does so, ants come from deep within the earth and complete the task for her.

    This proclamation was the cause that put all doubt from Psyches, who was scantly come in the sight of the house of Venus, but one of her servants called Custome came out, who espying Psyches, cried out with a loud voyce, saying, O wicked harlot as thou art, now at length thou shalt know that thou hast a mistresse above , dost thou make thy selfe ignorant, as though thou didst not. The next task involves sheep but not your average, everyday sheep. These are vicious creatures indeed! Psyche, of course, accomplishes this task too, whereupon Venus will impose an even more terrifying task which will require her to visit the Styx and the Cocytus, another one of the rivers that surrounds the land of the dead.
