By meagan_s, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
When Zeus had become ruler of Mount Olympus, after the war between Zeus and the Titans, Zeus asked Prometheus to create mortals.
Prometheus was given a basket of gifts, from Mother Earth, to give to the mortals and the animals.
Prometheus' brother, Epimethius, wanted to give some of the gifts away. So Epimethius gave most of the gifts to the animals and Prometheus gave the mortals fire.
Zeus became enraged and punished Prometheus by creating Pandora. He asked the other gods to give her attributes.
Zeus presented Epimethius with Pandora. Epimethius had warned Pandora not to open the jar .
Pandora opened the jar, and every bad thing flew out. She quickly closed the jar but by then, everything but hope had left the jar. Since hope was the last thing in the jar, it has been the only thing that humans have used to get by.
