Storyboard Text

  • Athena, Greek weaver goddess
  • Arachne, a peasant, very skilled weaver
  • My weaving is so good, it's even better than Athena's work!
  • Athena
  • Let's settle this. Who is better at weaving?
  • vs.
  • Arachne
  • Hers looks better than mine! But she can't say that she is higher than a god. I must punish her.
  • Done!
  • Done!
  • Athena was so livid with anger that Arachne, a mere mortal, would dare declare that she was better than a goddess, Athena. In her anger, Athena beat Arachne and ruined her weaving. Horrified and disgraced, Arachne hanged herself.
  • Athena saw what she had done and repented by taking Arachne's body and transforming it into a spider, letting her keep the talent of weaving.
