Storyboard Text

  • I'm such a good weaver.
  • Arachne was a shepherds daughter who started weaving at a young age.
  • Arachne became so good a weaving and people started to say that the was better than Athena.
  • I know...I know!
  • She's even better than the goddess, Athena!
  • WOW !!!
  • Athena got tired of her boasting and knew that she had to do something.
  • I'm going to disguise myself as an old lady, approach the boasting girl, and tell her that she should never compare herself to a goddess and to plead for forgiveness.
  • I only speak the truth and if Athena thinks otherwise then let her come down and challenge me herself!
  • You can never compare to any of the gods. Plead for forgiveness and Athena might spare your soul.
  • Athena removed her disguise and Arachne was surprised. The two began weaving straight away.
  • Arachne's weaving showed ways that the gods had abused mortals. When Athena saw that Arachne had not only insulted the gods, but done so with work far more beautiful than her own, she was mad. She ripped Arachne's work into shreds and hit her on the head three times.
  • Because Arachne was so terrified she hung herself. As a punishment Athena let her keep living but turned her into a spider.
  • I'm so scared!
  • Live on but remain hanging!
