This awesome sketch art card of Kronos from Greek Mythology is created by the very talented artist Tony Perna :icontonyperna: for our Classic Mythology trading card set.



Kronos (Cronus) – Greek Mythology - Kronos was the leader and the youngest of the first generation of Titans, divine descendants of Gaia, the earth, and Uranus, the sky. He overthrew his father and ruled during the mythological Golden Age. In fear of a prophecy that he would be in turn be overthrown by his own son, Kronos swallowed each of his children as soon as they were born. Rhea managed to save the youngest, Zeus, by hiding him away on the island of Krete, and fed Kronos a stone wrapped in the swaddling clothes of an infant. The god grew up, forced Kronos to disgorge his swallowed offspring, and led the Olympians in a ten year war against the Titanes, before driving them defeated into the pit of Tartaros. Zeus imprisoned Kronos in Tartarus. Many human generations later, Zeus released Kronos and his brothers from this prison, and made the old Titan king of the Elysian Islands, home of the blessed dead.

Kronos was usually depicted with a sickle or scythe, which was also the instrument he used to castrate and depose Uranus, his father. In Athens, on the twelfth day of the Attic month of Hekatombaion, a festival called Kronia was held in honour of Kronos to celebrate the harvest, suggesting that, as a result of his association with the virtuous Golden Age, Kronos continued to preside as a patron of harvest.

Would you mind if I used this in a school research project? I'm doing a project on artwork of Saturn throughout the ages, and this would be very nice to have, as it shows a different style than many of the works I have currently compiled.
Also, will these be produced in any countries other than Canada? I need to cite location.

Thanks! I really didn't want to go with the typical Kronos eating his children theme. :)

Yeah, in my version of that story, Cronus usurps his Father Uranus with the sickle without having to castrate him. They just fight, and he gets the drop on him and then uses the sickle to force him to surrender his throne.

Well I just aserted in my version (back when I had the storyboards up) that the furries and the goddess of love were just offspring of the escapades the lustful Uranus had with his many women and goddesses. As supreme god, and like most of those gods, he was debauched and immoral; and the pleasures of his throne were one of the main reasons for his eventual usurpation by his own son, Cronus whom he treated as a slave underfoot and who was jealous of what his father had.
It's all just mythology and fiction. But it gives a good lesson to make one wonder why on earth people in ancient times would actually worship and revere such immoral individuals.
