Goya's Saturn[Cronos] works here on a lot of symbolic levels.
The 'eating' of children in a vain attempt to stall the ravages of 'time'.
The destruction of youth to prevent it from conquering you.

(And don't forget my Dog; fixed and consequent)
Ball, Molech, Ashtoreth, the tophet right out of the
valley of Hinnon (hell, Hades) the star god of Saturn.
Do you think this is what Goya had in mind when he painted this?
