Myths (or history, if you may) speak of the Gods mightily asserting their rule over earth. Some times with mountain shattering fires, sweeping floods, disease and death.

A few artists have gone far beyond our usually rather modest experience with cosmic upheavals and produced images that convey both the splendid and terrible character of the supremacy from above.
