Pandora's Box by sirocco-rc Pandora's Box by sirocco-rc
Mythology: Pandora

Zeus ordered Hephaestus to make a mixture of earth and water and from it to create a woman
as beautiful as a goddess. When she was ready, Athena adorned her and taught her how to wave,
while Aphrodite endowed her with grace and passion, the Graces and Peitho garlanded her with
gold ribbons and the Hours decorated her with Spring flowers. Hermes, on the other hand, put
malicious and lying words into her heart. Zeus called her Pandora, because she had received gifts
(dora) from all the gods, and sent her off to Epimetheus. Bewitched by her beauty, he fell in love with
her and took her out to mankind to see. Pandora's fate was to be the cause of all human misfortune,
because she opened the lid of a jar from which evils of all kinds immediately spilled out to fill the world.
Only HOPE was left in the jar, because Pandora closed the lid again at the last moment. As a result,
mankind - who until that time had known no pain, sickness or death - was doomed to everlasting
unhappiness.

This is pretty amazing stuff. Pandora (and her dress) are beautiful, and the effect of the background, lit, I assume, from that which Pandora has allowed to escape. The Niobid Krater sitting behind her is a magnificent touch, especially since its color scheme connect with both Pandora and the illuminated background. Very, very fabulous work. I've only had the opportunity to look at a few pieces from your galleries, but I will definitely be back to take in the rest.
