My Freak Mythology

Even Atlas Can take it no more!

Even Atlas can take it no more……

So you have probably read or heard of Atlas the titan,the loner who was condemned by Zeus to carry the heavens on his shoulders as a punishment for supporting the titan-monarchy against the Olympians .Despite the various interpretations of Atlas’s origin and punishment;i would stick to Uranus and Gaia though the most common is Lapetus and Clymene.Anyway,it is heavens and earth…and Atlas stuck inbetween…

This illustration is only to capture Atlas’s point of view…WTF ! i thought i was carrying the heavens! not some Terra full of Bullsh** ! well guess what mortals,i am gonna carry your wars,hypocrisy,injustice,and all your fu**ery on the tip of my middle finger.As my father was deprived from my mother’s holy embrace so shall your  peace,freedom,faith,and your filthy greedy souls…your land is wounded…wrapped in a bloody ribbon and unsolved riddles…Seek and destroy little puppets..

I basically gathered some of the rare good values of our time written in blue to represent the sky of Uranus,and the lower part is obviously Gaia..the ribbon stands between good and evil,while carrying some of the main symbols of our history.and the hand…you guessed it right,Atlas!

Alas!

Sarkasmos!

ΕΡΜΗΣ – Hermes and his french pédila !

 

From the land of Arcadia he carried his golden pédila * and the great caduceus in his timeworn pouch.On this woebegone day the great magician shall exculpate himself from the burdens of Olympus.”O son, how many bodies we have to pass through, how many bands of demons, through how many series of repetitions and cycles of the stars, before we hasten to the One alone? ” .*

Zeus,Maia.and Atlas…Bless the sanguine that rushes through my veins, intoxicated by Aphrodite.Hermaphroditus the apple of my eye and Pan my forsaken child.Oh how i erred and spread my seeds among the nymphs and the spawns of my divine loins! I shall repent at the gate of the everlasting darkness where i guided countless souls to the shores of hope!

The Erinyes heard the awes of Hermes.Alecto was furious,and convinced Tisiphone and Megaera to punish Hermes by stealing his pouch once he looses his wakefulness.Each one of them stealthily stripped the old magician of his precious items,and escaped in to the wilderness.

Hermes carelessly yawned,stretched his weary arms and opened his eyes to see a prophecy before his eyes.” But..i am the messenger of the Gods! ” he looked for his pouch and pédila but they vanished in a blink!

He then heard the voice of the Smart Erinyes calling his name : ”Hermes ,Oh messenger of the Gods,your time has come.Say goodbye to your golden pédila ! Your punishment is to serve humanity forever more as your Precious sandals become a french masterpiece in memory of Mrs.Hermes,the long forgotten beauty yet to be seen when you are merely a statue to be admired,Women…νενικήκαμεν.*! .”

Sarkasmos!

jus·tice > \ˈjəs-təs\ Justitia

jus·tice > \ˈjəs-təs\

I was really bored last night,and nothing got me inspired to write something for my blog.For some reason I’ve always been fascinated by Greek Mythology and its equivalent in Roman Mythology.This is a sketch i made of our modern(roman)  Justitia or Lady Justice who can hardly foresee the future while blindfolded.Her attempts to keep the balance of the scales are derisory.It makes me wonder why she is placed in courthouses instead of Themis,aka as the Mother of Divine law (who carries the scales of justice) in Greek mythology.Being the oracular of Delphi and blessed with sharp vision and prophecy she steps over the unbalanced scales to prognosticate the unknown.For us to favor Justitia over Themis means one thing : We don not seek justice,we claim to do so…doubting my words?Take a look at the world around ya…

I did it with a sharp piece of charcoal,and then photoshop.Not so great,but it delivers the message loud and clear!

Sarkasmos!
