PLEASE, NEGATIVE CRITIQUES ARE NOT WELCOME. THESE ARE ARTISTS INTERPRETATIONS. DESCRIPTIONS ARE BASED ON VARIOUS STORIES THAT ALL DIFFER FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. THANK YOU.



This awesome sketch art card of Hades + Cerberus from Greek Mythology is drawn by the very talented artist Lynne Anderson :iconlynneanderson: for our Classic Mythology trading card set.

 

Greek Mythology – Hades (Aidoneus) was the ancient God of the Underworld in Greek Mythology. Hades is the oldest male child of Cronus and Rhea. According to myth, he and his brothers Zeus and Poseidon defeated the Titans and claimed rulership over the cosmos, ruling the underworld, air, and sea, respectively; the solid earth, long the province of Gaia, was available to all three concurrently. He received the Helm of Darkness (which could make him invisible) from three Cyclopes to help defeat the Titans. He also had three sisters, Demeter, Hestia, and Hera. Hades consort was Persephone and some of his symbols included Cerberus, Cap of invisibility or Helm of Darkness, Cypress, Narcissus and Key of Hades.


Greek Mythology - Cerberus was the offspring of Echidna, a hybrid half-woman and half-serpent, and Typhon, a fire-breathing giant whom even the Olympian gods feared. Its brother is Orthrus, always depicted as a two-headed hellhound. The common depiction of Cerberus in Greek mythology and art is as having three heads. In most works the three-heads each respectively see and represent the past, the present, and the future, while other sources suggest the heads represent birth, youth, and old age. Each of Cerberus' heads is said to have an appetite only for live meat and thus allow the spirits of the dead to freely enter the underworld, but allow none to leave. Cerberus was always employed as Hades' loyal watchdog, and guarded the gates that granted access and exit to the underworld (also called Hades).

I love how these three dogs 'heads' are so cuddly and drooling and Hades doesn't even mind that they are slobbering all over him. It is easy to imagine these vicious dogs being friendly when they aren't guarding the gates of Hades. After all they are only doing their jobs and they respect their master. Their relationship with Hades is clear that they care about each other and considering how they are both misunderstood there is no question why Hades would care for a Beastly creature that would otherwise be feared in the upper world.  Although they would obey him anyways, still I see an essence of just how powerful he is if he can face these dogs and train them to follow his command and Persephone.
