About this creation
Untitled MOC Group homepage
MOC Athalon homepage
Cronus was now the lord of the universe. He sat on the highest mountain and ruled over heaven and earth with a firm hand...This was man's Golden Age. Men lived happily and in peace with the gods and each other. They did not kill and had no locks on their doors, for theft had not yet been invented.


But Cronus did not set his brothers free, and Mother Earth was angry with him and plotted his downfall... She knew that one of his sons would be stronger than he, just as Cronus had been stronger than his father. Cronus knew it too, so every time his Titaness-wife Rhea gave birth, he took the newborn god and swallowed it.
"Can I have some mustard please, Rhea?"

...When Rhea expected her sixth child, she asked Mother Earth to help her save the child from his father. That was what Mother Earth was waiting for. She gave her daughter whispered advice, and Rhea walked away smiling. As soon as Rhea had borne her child, the god Zeus, she hid him. Then she wrapped a stone in baby clothes and gave it to her husband to swallow instead of her son.
"Hmm, rather pale complexion... nothing a little hydrochloric stomach acid can't fix!"

Cronus was fooled and swallowed the stone, and the little god Zeus was spirited away.

"Lord of the Universe... pshh, more like Lord of the Dumb if you ask me..."

An overall view.

The floor has the Greek letter sigma inscribed on it, which stands for the Greek word for 'universe'.

A y-axis 3/4 view.

I don't know if I independently came up with this technique, but I'm going to say "yes" and call it a day.

Okay, check list for things that went wrong last time:
Big: check
Linked: check
SNOT: check
Good: your turn, judges!

Thanks for looking, and have a nice MOC Athalon!

Quoting El Barto ! Cool build, and a humorous take on the story. Just saw the worst Greek Myth based movie called Percy Jackson and the Olympians. The should have hired you!
I hear you, that movie was downright awful, and inaccurate to boot. I'm glad you liked this, though!

Quoting John Moffatt First off, you've done a fantastic job on this. Good choice of myth and the build itself is quite well done. Also, you've reminded me to get back to work on my own entries.
Glad to help :).

Note: The technique I was referring to was the 2x 2x1 slopes, 2x 2x1 inverted slopes, and 1x 1x1 brick present in the walkway-thing.
