Gods and Titans

John Flaxman (English, 1755-1826) Blake, William, Engraver (English, 1757-1827)


The Titans were the oldest generation of Greek gods.  They were overthrown by Zeus, his brothers and sisters in a fierce battle for supremacy.  From the heights of heaven Zeus hurls his thunderbolts, overcoming the Titans whom he binds in chains and casts down into the depths of the earth.
