image credit: The image of Psyche’s Ants belongs to artwork reproduced in Sonia Cavicchioli's Tale of Cupid & Psyche, an Illustrated History. Historically as early as the 1480s such imagery circulates under the supervision of Ercole Roberti in a fresco sequence illustrating the tale of Cupid and Psyche; the series is no longer extant. The tale reappears in a later series of frescoes c. 1527, in Mantua under the supervison of Giulio Romano. The Psyche-EROS tale often appears as the subject for numerous marriage chests during the 15thC-18thC. The image is part of the Historical Tarot of the era.
