The famous Greek myth of Pandora's Box tells the story of the creation of life on earth and the loss of innocence. Pandora, created by Zeus, is given the gifts of the gods and sent to earth where Epimetheus falls in love with her. Zeus gives them a box which must not be opened. Pandora, having been given the gift of curiosity, opens the box and unleashes suffering into the world.
