Prometheus Myth

Prometheus Myth

Storyboard Text

  • Prometheus and Athena worked together, as he molded the beings from clay, and Athena breathed life into each of them. In such as way, they created "humans".
  • Prometheus was a Titan, who had been on the side of the gods and Zeus, along with his brother Epimetheus, when they went against their father and two of his siblings.
  • He cared for humanity a lot, which caused him to often have fights with Zeus, as he saw him as a tyrant who wasn't leading the humans properly.
  • Following an incident where Prometheus tricked Zeus into accepting offerings of bones and fat rather than the fine meat as a sacrifice, Zeus punished humankind by hiding "fire".
  • Finding this unfair, Prometheus stole the fire back from Olympus, and gave it to the humans as a gift.
  • Following that, though humankind could keep fire, Zeus punished them, creating Pandora, and punished Prometheus by chaining him to a rock and having an eagle tear into his liver, letting him regenerate, just to be hurt again everyday indefinitely.
