World lit. art hunt prometheus

  1. 1. Prometheus<br />By Jacob Jordaens (1640)<br />- Alludes to the myth of Prometheus who was chained to a mountain and had his liver eaten by an eagle every day as a punishment for giving men fire.<br />- In this version, Prometheus is not chained to the cliff of a mountain but to the floor and is forced on his back. This could imply forced submission to the gods.<br />
