Paul Reid, Typhon Sleeping, 2015⁠⠀

About this piece Fidra Fine Art recently wrote that “Typhon, son of Gaia (Earth) and the dreadful deity Tartarus, was a terrifying monster who made war on Zeus and the Olympian Gods. He was personification of chaos and a threat to the order and sovereignty of Zeus in the newly created cosmos.⁠⠀
“Typhon was victorious in the first battle with Zeus, taking away his weapon, a sickle and with it removing the sinews of the god’s limbs, leaving him helpless on the ground. Zeus and his sinews were then placed in a cave guarded by Delphyne, a fearsome she-dragon in the service of Typhon.”⁠
