Crow Headed Saturn

An image of Saturn taken from the Picatrix:

"the image of Saturn according to the opinion of the sage Picatrix is the form of a man with the face of a crow and the fee of a camel, sitting on a throne. In this right hand he has a spear and in his left hand a lance or dart."

Camel feet are hard to draw....may re-do this one at some.

Jupiter (picatrix)

A planetary image of Jupiter based on a description found in the Picatrix

"The image of Jupiter according to other sages is the image of a man diding on an eagle, carrying cloth in his right hand and holding nuts in his left hand, and all of his clothing is saffron coloured."

 This image is obviously derived from images of the greco-roman Jupiter/Zeus.
