I was very shocked when I first saw the painting Saturnus eating children. The little creature in this illustration may be the soul of a child. Stories of Gods, Japanese Gods and Buddhas are very interesting, but sometimes shocking which makes them even more interesting. It is also fun to interpret the stort by yourself and introduce into a fun illustration!
