This storyboard does not have a description.
Tantalus was a rich and mighty king of Lydia, who was greatly favored by the gods. He also enjoys the highest treatment, but does not know how to cherish, and started misbehaving.
King Tantalus wants to trick the other gods to prove he's smarter than any god. So he decided to kill his son and made him into a stew.
I'll prove that I am smarter!
It's time to trick the gods!
If the gods refused to be blackmailed, he will threaten to tell his kingdom that the gods had killed his son. However, he knows that gods will never eat human flesh, so his plan might work.
I will tell my kingdom that the gods killed my son!
He does not know that the gods know about his mischievous plan. So they put his son back to life and stated the revenge on the king.
Let's Make Revenge!
The gods put king Tantalus stuck into his garden, next to an apple tree. He spotted a golden apple and tries to reach it, but the branch moved.
As more and more stories of the rotten ugly things king Tantalus had done came to light, no one came to the king's rescue. Finally, king Tantalus slowly withered away by without ingesting anything.
