Jeremiah - maelstrom - Jeremiah s Complaint (Forerunner Commentary) - Bible Tools

"How many children did you two have," Aphrodite asked innocently, but it caused tears to well up in Athena's eyes and Poseiden to look at the ground sadly.

Most painters of this scene turn it into a huge biblical spectacle, making it a revolting tableaux of death and mayhem. But Cogniet focuses our attention on one petrified woman, a mother who knows she is about to lose her child. She envelopes her doomed child, her bare feet revealing how vulnerable they are. There’s no way to run. She is cornered.
