Description

Prometheus, Acrylic on canvas 79 x 79 2018

“The Gods still challenge us everyday.”–G

This painting tells the greek mythological story of Prometheus who gave fire to humankind. Zeus and other Gods were furious at Prometheus for this and chained him to rock naked and tortured him. They ensured that everyday an eagle would come and eat his liver away. Language has changed since ancient greek times so the words EAT ME are written as if Prometheus is saying F*** YOU to the gods.
