Saturnism is a pathology caused by lead poisoning. The disease manifests through a feverish state, motor function disorders and a feeling of dizziness and of falling.

In the myth, Saturn’s reign on Earth starts the advent of the golden age : he abolishes property and inequalities between men. It’s the invention of social utopia.

The ingestion theme, preponderant in the saturnine myth (Saturn eats his children), evokes in a metaphorical way the condition of human beings living in some ideological systems: the individual is absorbed by the whole in a totalitarian State. Within the drawing, ingestion is conveyed by the feeling of being snatched, or of falling. The nautiles (or the ammonite) are a reference to Baal Hammon, the “African Saturn”
