Zeus punished men for Prometheus’ theft of fire
by causing the first woman to be created out of clay
This woman is Pandora: ‘All-Gifted’,
because of the gifts provided her by the gods
She is Man’s punishment for the theft of fire
Pandora opens the jar
in which all kinds of evils are contained
they escape and wander over the earth
Only Hope remains in the jar…
begin to mould the clay with your hands!
And when he has drunk off a golden horn full of wine,
she will massage the old one under the soft blanket.
