The design has as its source of inspiration:
Theogony by Hesiod, 8th century BC
Hesiod's "Theogony" was written around the end of the 8th century B.C. It is an epic poem consisting of 1,022 hexameter verses that discusses the origins of the gods and the creation of the world, leading up to Zeus' absolute domination. The poem provides a poetic account of the earliest inquiries people had about physical phenomena, set within the mythical framework of the traditions and biases of the time.
In addition to their other children, Gaia and Uranus had three sons who were particularly noteworthy: the Hecantocheires, who were incredibly arrogant and had one hundred hands and fifty heads each.
