Swallowed up by Cronus Picture

The first story of the Greek mythologies. About Cronus, Rhea and their children. Cronus and Rhea were the parents of Demeter, Hera, Hades, Hestia, and the two youngest, Poseidon and Zeus. At first it was all good, but gradually began to Cronus fear that sooner or later he would suffer the same fate as Uranus (Cronus father). Therefore, one day he devoured so many of the children as he could, but Rhea managed to hide Zeus. Instead, she gave Cronus a stone wrapped in a bundle and he swallowed instead of this.

Whoever is in Cronus belly is Poseidon and I have not made ​​any sign that Hestia is in the picture .... Who cares. Then I got the idea of making all the girls get the father's hair and the mother's eye color - boys get the mother's hair and the father's eye color. Why did Hera get brown hair then?!
