FATHER ZEUS

The following image is intended for mature audiences.

One of my first attempts at a full color digital painting.

I wanted to illustrate a Pagan story in all its pre-Christian glory, complete with the frank and bizarre depictions of violence and sexuality that were originally present in Greek myths. In this case, I combined two stories: the births of Athena and Dionysus, who were both born from their father’s body. In this context Zeus’ erect penis should be viewed as a symbol of his fertility rather than sexual desire.
