  1. It’s a great concept, but it’s misapplied. Removes the original’s weight. Take, for example, Saturn’s eyes. You’ll do it in other projects with great results, and you’ll get better at it!

  2. What a fantastic item! However, I never understood the Goya painting on which this was based because the mythology clearly states that he swallowed them whole.

  3. Last weekend, I broke up with my girlfriend, and while we were avoiding the inevitable discussion in my bedroom, she was browsing through my Goya coffee table book while I cooked for us.

    I knew she was on her way to Saturn because I heard her “YUCK! He’s like, an EXTREMELY OLD DAD!”

    I’ll remember that any time I consider going back on my decision, lol. She was just like that.

  4. It’s particularly fascinating because I recently saw the film Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. There’s a scene where there’s this painting and a hedge fund manager discussing it. Then I start seeing this thing all over the place. The Universe can be strange at times.

  5. I heard about this painting in an art history class, which isn’t exactly a fun reality. Saturn had a massive erection while eating his kid, according to the original painting, which was transferred to canvas and painted over to cover it.
