This storyboard does not have a description.
King Acrisius of Argos had his daughter Danaë, but wished for a son to pass on his legacy. He traveled to the oracle in Delphi to ask if he could ever wish for a son - the priestess said no, and that his grandson would be the one to kill him.
King Acrisius locks Danaë away underground in a house of bronze and a roof open to the sky, in fear of the gods instead of killing her.
The underground house did not stop Zeus, and Zeus came to Danaë and soon she gave birth to Perseus.
As soon as the king found out, he crafts a huge chest for the two and sends them off to sea to be killed indirectly. Fisherman Dictys found them and took them home, where they would live for many years.
Polydectes, the king of the island, wanted to marry Danaë, but did not want a son. He spoke to Perseus about how much he wanted one of the Gorgon heads.
The day of Polydectes and Danaë's wedding, Perseus does not have a gift to give, so he declared he would go and chop off Medusa's head as a gift.
