Art Inspiration: A Gift From The Gods; Pandora: Pandora


Pandora title

  In my life I have had moments that inspire me to create and wonder about different possibilities. Working with children has always been a catalyst for these moments. On a number of occasions I have provided a drawing or art class for the children and their curiosity has inspired many ideas and creations. Some of these inspirations have produced scenes of me drawing them camping, or as characters from Harry Potter, but the majority of them enjoyed me creating a scene based on the Greek gods. I have posted this work so titled The Greek Gods, Distraction on Olympus”.

  This experience was so enjoyable that I have been thinking of creating another scene from Greek Mythology for some time. In the next few weeks I will be posting the different characters of this scene and a little background info on each one.

  I must emphasize that this drawing is not for the children in my school but an independent work I undertook for my own enjoyment. It is from my imagination and may be a bit adult.

Pandora

  Pandora was a gift to humanity as punishment because Prometheus gave the gift of fire to us. Hephaestus created Pandora under the orders from Zeus. She then was bestowed with gifts from the gods to make her desirable to men. She is presented to Epimetheus brother of Prometheus, as a gift. However, Prometheus warns his bother not to accept the gift, but he does not heed his bother’s warning.   She carries with her a jar, a gift from Zeus, which contains all the evils and plagues of the world, yet she is told not to open it. Of course when someone is told not to do something they inevitably do that thing. She opens the lid and releases the evils and plagues onto the earth, but holds back hope that is still in the control of humans.

  I created Pandora with a full body and legs, to show the full female form of Pandora that Hephaestus creates. I created her in a sensual pose to highlight her figure. Her leg is turned in and her left arm up was my way of creating a ‘come hither look’ for her. I also created her hair rolling off the left side of her face and shoulder to enhance that effect. I did this to cover one eye to give her that “mysterious look” as I call it. Originally I created her with blonde hair but if she is from the Mediterranean region, then she would have dark hair, hence the brown. Her shoes were supposed to be sandals but I decided to give her high heels. High heels are used to emphasize certain physical features such as her hips, behind, breasts and shapely legs.

 I hope you enjoy my depiction of Pandora, from The Gift From The Gods; Pandora.
