KHAOS (or Chaos) was the first of the Protogenoi (primeval gods) on greek mythology to emerge at the creation of the universe. She was followed in quick succession by Gaia (Earth), Tartaros (the Underworld) and Eros (Love the life-bringer).

Khaos was the lower atmosphere which surrounded the earth - invisible air and gloomy mist. Her name khaos literally means the gap, the space between heaven and earth. Khaos was the mother or grandmother of the other substances of air: Nyx (Night), Erebos (Darkness), Aither (Light) and Hemera (Day), as well as the various emotion-affecting Daimones which drifted through it. She was also a goddess of fate like her daughter Nyx and grand-daughters the Moirai.

Later authors defined Khaos as the chaotic mix of elements that existed in the primeval universe, confusing it with the primeval Mud of the Orphic cosmogonies, but this was not the original meaning. Chaos, the vacant and infinite space which existed according to the ancient cosmogonies previous to the creation of the world, and out of which the gods, men, and all things arose. A different definition of Chaos is given by Ovid, who describes it as the confused mass containing the elements of all things that were formed out of it. According to Hesiod, Chaos was the mother of Erebos and Nyx. Some of the later poets use the word Chaos in the general sense of the airy realms, of darkness, or the lower world.

Tu como sabes que Chaos era un ser femenino y no masculino? lo leíste en algún lado? o simplemente preferiste ilustrarla hembra???

Chaos fue la primer protogenoi (dios primigenio) y su origen nace con el nacimiento mismo del universo. Fue madre de otros dioses y diosas.

As much as I don't agree with Chaos being a woman...I love it. Absolute perfection, and if he was a woman I picture he'd look like this. :)

...although Chaos apparently never took your usual 'pretty person with powers' form, which even the later protogenoi only ever did for the sake of communicating or screwing each other. 


...Still, this rendition is pretty suitable. Just love the claws and the chains.

Chaos is #1! Chaos is awesome! Although I always viewed both the Alpha and Omega of Chaos being more of an Abstract Force then a human.

Chaos is not a goddess, chaos is an abstract concept, a primal force.

Chaos is the lack of order. For example: I only slept half of what I usually sleep, so my health is now in chaos.

i'm afraid your wrong about that, Chaos is a goddess in fact she a protogenoi or one of the first goddess long with Gaia and much more. The one that you used in your example is a a different meaning then to the goddess chaos.

That actually depends on what view. Some people believe that Chaos is the infinte and primal force beyond form of gender or comprehension... that being said, this artwork looks awesome.

Indeed. I for one can appreciate the different views, including yours.

I myself though just depict Chaos as being simply limitless and formless yet can take on many forms, I know that sounds kind of uncreative but I really expect no other from Chaos itself or herself... or himself... or GAAAHHH!!!
