Prometheus Photos

Firebringer
I don’t regret a thing! [Prometheus brings Fire to Mankind by Heinrich Füger, ca. 1817]


Getting Tied Up
Would somebody please tell me what Hermes is laughing at in this picture? At least Hephaestus had the decency to look like he felt a little bad about chaining me to a rock. [Prometheus Chained by Hephaestus by Dirck van Baburen, 1623]


Bo-ring
Sometimes the boredom felt like the worst torture of all. [Prometheus by Reinhold Begas, ca. 1900]


Why I Hate Birds
I’m not afraid to admit it. I still get kind of freaked out when I see an eagle in the sky. [Gefesselter Prometheus by Peter Paul Rubens, 1611-1612]


Yeah, Still Hate Birds
Seriously? Liver? Can it really taste that good? [Prometheus by Gustave Moreau, 1868]


Heracles, My Hero
I’ve never been happier to see anyone in my entire immortal life. Thanks for setting me free, buddy! [Hercules Unbound by Christian Griepenkerl, 1878]
