Prometheus Photos

    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]

    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]
