The Abduction of Psyche by William-Adolphe Bouguereau.
Abduction of Psyche by Zephyrus. Allegory of the abduction of psyche (mind, soul) by the wind. According to Greek mythology Zephyrus was one of the four gods of air, which corresponds to west wind.
Son of Astraeus and Eos, was considered the most mild and gentle wind. According to myth, he served Eros abducting Psyche and taking her to his cave. The wind literally abducts the psyche and leaves it to love and desire (Eros).
The 'psyche', according to the etymology of the word, is already itself a 'breath of air'. It is the breath that gives us life, but especially gives us the soul and understanding.
...So our soul and our mind, ethereal themselves, are completely at the mercy of 'air'.
