Lamia was said to be the daughter of king Belus of Egypt and granddaugher of Poseidon. She was also queen of Libya. Zeus fell in love with her and had many children. Then Hera drove her mad and forced to eat her own childen. Having done that she became cursed and deformed with a tail of a snake and was unable to close her eyes seeing forever the children she ate. She also had the urge to eat other children as well. Zeus pity her and gave her the ability to remove her eyes. That's how the myth goes with many variations.

Coloring and design insiped by ancient Greek pottery.
