Primordial Deities: Uranus Picture

My eighth image for my Greek Mythology Challenge Chapter i.

Taking Gaia to wife, he impregnated her with many children but was not prepared to deal with the consequences. In fact he was terrified of the monstrous brood of Titans forming inside her and threatened terrible reprisals should they ever pop out.

Gaia, wanting to protect her children, kept them inside herself as long as she could, but pretty soon the pain was unbearable. Relief only came when their youngest son Cronus stepped in. Or rather, popped out.

Armed with a sickle he castrated Uranus and Cronus took over as supreme being.
