Storyboard Text

  • There goes Arachne! She's the best weaver in town. It's like Athena herself came down and taught her. We nymphs left our glades and streams to watch her weave.
  • Background
  • Being great is bad because...?
  • I totes hate it when people compare me to Athena. Like, that goddess has nothing on me.
  • Arachne, you should apologize before Hera finds out!
  • The Confrontation
  • How dare a mere mortal claim to be the equal of a goddess of Olympus? I'll disguise myself and give her a chance to set things right.
  • I know, I'll make a weaving of all the stupid things the gods do when they abuse their power.
  • Arachne, known as Arakhne in Greek (Arachne, Theoi Project). Father: Idmon, Mother: Unknown, City: Colophon, Land: Lydia (Smith 253-254).
  • The Challenge
  • I'll make a weaving of the time the gods chose me over Poseidon, and in the corners I'll place images of humans punished for their insolence.
  • Because of your impressive talent I shall save your life and leave you your ability to spin and weave. However, because of your insolence you and your descendants are forever cursed with the form of a spider.
  • Arachne took too much pride in her weaving skill. She ends up insulting Athena when she claims to be the better weaver (Hart 6-7).
  • The Outcome
  • Athena disguised herself as an old woman and gave Arachne the chance to apologize, but Arachne refused to apologize (Hart 9-13).

  • Athena's design is yet another warning to Arachne, while Arachne's is nothing but an insult to the gods. Athena destroys the image and strike Arachne (Ovid).
  • Arachne hung herself, but Athena "loosened the rope and saved her life" (Smith 254). Then Athena "transformed her into a spider" (Athena).
