About the work: In the legends, the goddess Psyche was cursed by Aphrodite, who said Psyche would now fall in love with the most unworthy and disgusting mortal men. Meanwhile, 16-Psyche is thought to have undergone an extremely large collision that stripped it of many of its surface layers. Due to the tragedies the Psyches have experienced, I chose to depict Psyche the goddess caressing the asteroid, comforting it with her empathy.
