Its a symbolic painting of Prometheus. As you can see the figure, neck an wrist, are chained just like the mythical titan. Abover him, including his forehead, are 3 symbols. The symbol on the eclipse means clay, the one on his forehead means to make from, and the one on the moon means man. So the whole thing means clay made into man. If you dont already know, prometheus made man out of clay. And the sphere of fire in his hand is the fire of the gods which he stole an gave to man. The symbol on it is a mix of an eye with a triangle in it. The eye generally means knowledge, an the triangle is a symbol for divinity and fire. So the whole idea is he carried the 'divine fire' that brought man knowledge.
