In Roman myth, based heavily on the Greek myth, the father of the Gods devours his own children to ensure none greater than himself ever comes into being. It is this act of child murder that Goya has painted. The painting was never meant for public consumption, as it was painted on the wall of his house alongside several other grim paintings known collectively as ‘The Black Paintings.’ Some see the painting as a comment on the aging process that must have been playing out in the aging artist’s mind. Of the Black Paintings which Goya completed the other most famous work is probably his Witches’ Sabbath.
Saturn devouring one of his children is on display in the Museo del Prado in Madrid.

According to Belgium website Jalopnik, 25-year-old Jasmien Claeys was the driver of this unfortunate car. Her Ford Focus slammed into the back of a truck and then was nearly shattered by a second truck — which had the dashcam we saw. Amazingly, Jasmien survived, but was in a coma for days, with a shattered hand and two broken vertebrae — VERY lucky to be alive.
