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.

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

I know, I know - I've been a bit of a recluse lately. I'll see what I can do about making it down in your neck of the woods once this winter blows over.

You fine folks are always welcome up here, too!
