Wait, I don't recall Cronos eating his wives, or even that he had more than one.

RE: Baby eating statue
The human capacity for misinterpretation is astounding. What should be obvious to anyone is that it is the sculpture of the village barber who mislaid his scissors but heroically improvised and trimmed the children's hair with his teeth. This is a monument fer cryin' out loud, and monuments commemorate acts of nobility and sacrifice and ... eh?

... excuse me ...

Oh.

Ahem. Sorry about that. The statue was commissioned by W.C. Fields. Never mind.

Fun fact, I have a print of this painting hanging on my wall above my desk.
