Pandora was the first woman Greek goddess created. She was the first woman created by Zeus.
Pandora has many painted of her but one of the most popular of them all “Pandora.”
She also has businesses named after her
such as Pandora Jewelry.
Zeus realized one day that everybody
was alike. Everyone then decided they needed something new. Zeus and the other
gods created this goddess and named her Pandora Meaning “all gifts.” Each person
then gave her something after she was created.
One example was from “Greek Mythology” Hermes taught Pandora to talk
(Payment, 46). According to “The Pandora Story” Athena gave Pandora life and
Aphrodite made Pandora irresistible to men (Pandora, 1/19/18). The gods also
gave her a jar full of evil spirits and one good spirit, hope she was on the
bottom in the corner. Those spirits will eventually be humans. One day Pandora
became curious, her husband Epimetheus was just as curious and did not stop
Pandora from opening the jar. As she opened the jar she let out all the bad and
evil spirits. She let out bad spirits such as: poverty, jealousy, revenge, war,
disease, suffering, sorrow, and hate. Even though Pandora tried putting the jar
lid on as fast as she can, she still let everything out except one. And all
that remained was hope; she was at the bottom of the jar crying. She wanted out
to relieve the world of all the bad spirits.
Pandora has many paintings painted
of her. One of the most famous ones is “Pandora” painted by John William Waterhouse.
The painting was painted in 1896. John used oil paint on a canvas. Some facts
about John are; John was born in Rome, Italy, and died in London, United Kingdom.
The painting is now at a private location, and is not on display. The picture
is of Pandora opening the box and releasing the spirits.
There is a Jewelry store named Pandora,
they sell customized bracelets, and jewelry. The word/name Pandora means “all
gifts” most people buy jewelry as gifts. Pandora was the first woman goddess,
and one person started the company in Denmark.
There is also another business with
the name Pandora. It is called Pandora Radio. Pandora radio is where you can
listen to music for free with paid ads. According to Quartz Media Pandora Radio
was created in 2000 as an online music, as a revolutionary idea before it
became such a huge thing, as it is used all over, in cars, on cell phones, etc.
Many people use Pandora just for a way so they don’t have to pay to download the
song they want to listen to. In the article it says “The metaphor is often
misapplied but in this case of Pandora, the internet music company, it may find
a dark fit” (Quartz, 23 Jan 18).
