This abstract watercolor painting depicts Prometheus as the giver of fire for the use of humankind. In Greek mythology, Zeus once assigned Prometheus the task of forming humans from water and earth, which he did, but in the process, became fonder of humans than Zeus had anticipated. Zeus did not share Prometheus' feelings and wanted to prevent humans from having power, especially over fire. Prometheus cared more for humans than for the wrath of the increasingly powerful and autocratic king of the gods, so he stole fire from Zeus' lightning, concealed it in a hollow stalk of fennel, and brought it to humanity.
