Saturn's rings cut across an eerie scene that is ruled by Titan's luminous crescent and globe-encircling haze, broken by the small moon Enceladus, whose icy jets are dimly visible at its south pole. North is up.

A French lithograph, 1844-61, depicts the Graeco-Roman goddess Athena/Minerva attacking the giant Enceladus; his shield bears a triskelion, symbol of Sicily, 'where he was swallowed by Aetna'; a falcon attacks Athena/Minerva's owl (her attribute, along with her helmet and snake-fringed aegis cloak).

"The Encelade Fountain" was created by Marsy between 1675-1677. The fountain depicts the legend of the fall of the Titans, and can be seen in the Groves of Versailles.
