I finished this about a month ago but didn't get a round to putting it up. Honestly, I couldn't find an appropriate category to put this in. It's mythology which is like fantasy, but its not quite "sword and sorcery." I could put it under portraits, but of a fictional character? Whatever.
This is Pandora. Why a vase-like container instead of a box? Because there was never a box. In a mistranslation of Hesiod's Works and Days, the word "pithos" (meaning a large type of jar) was replaced with "pyxis" (a small box-like container).
I tried to infuse some symbology of her as an archetype of the first woman and bringer of evil (her story is very simlar to Eve's in Genesis).
