Pandora Unbound by mbielaczyc Pandora Unbound by mbielaczyc
Pandora Unbound, oil on canvas, 30x40. 2009.

This painting is the companion of Prometheus Unbound, this time critiquing the myths around women.

Pandora came to earth and brought a box (or cauldron in the original myth) in which she opened and let loose all the woes on the earth. Here she has broken away from this man-written myth and has the freedom to find her own way.

thank you very much. i added things to the background over a year on my easel. lots of laying painting and allowing it to dry however.

An exceptional compliment to the Prometheus Unbound piece. She speaks so loud and so clearly without words.
