About: In an earlier set of myths, Pandora was a manifestation of the Great Goddess (provider of the gifts that made life and culture possible) Pandora's jar/box , according to this school of thought, represents the female womb. Yet in another tale written by Hesiod the jar/box releases a myriad of evils upon the earth which suggests the topocentric culture's unease with friendly female sexuality. In this particular piece I created I wanted to show that my version of pandora is opening a box of knowledge unto the universe of all the Faiths to form Enlightenment. There is a vast amount of symbology and symbolic meaning. What do you derive from this piece????? I would like to hear your view.
