Ivo told me he was about to add a lute-playing cherub in an empty space. So, Friday, I headed back to see what had developed. While putting the finishing touches on the cherub, Ivo said he now plans to add the god Ares. Already lolling with Chronos, Aphrodite, and the musical cherub are a winged cherub, the god Pan, and the devil, whose right hand is comfortably planted on Aphrodite's wrist. That is why, Ivo explained, the devil has a little smile on his face.

|IVO AMONG THE GODS WEDNESDAY.|
|BETWEEN CHRONOS AND APHRODITE: A CHERUB WITH A UKELELE.|
|THAT'S PAN ON THE RIGHT. HE'S SUPPOSED TO HAVE THE LEGS|
AND HORNS OF A GOAT — AND, OF COURSE, A "PAN" FLUTE.
|APHRODITE CAN CHANGE HER APPEARANCE|
TO BECOME WHATEVER ONE FINDS MOST BEAUTIFUL.
I GUESS THE DEVIL LIKES HER LIKE THAT.
In Roman mythology, Aphrodite would be your Venus, your fire, at your desire...
The first time I heard this song, I thought they were singing, "I'm your penis. I'm your fire."
