Drawing by Rei Inamoto depicting the Roman god Uranus.
Uranus personifies the starry sky in the evening. In the
creation myth of the Greeks, Uranus came forth spontaneously
from Earth (personified as the goddess
Gaea). Gaea herself came
spontaneously into being out of Chaos,
which preceded all things.
