Prometheus: The Fire-Bringer Picture

He was an ancient titan, a precursor to the Greek gods. He taught mankind how to manipulate and shape flame, angering Zeus, king of the gods. For Prometheus's gift to all of mankind, the capricious thunder-god chained the titan to a rock, sending out eagles every day to tear out Prometheus's liver. So that the titan would remain an example for eternity, Prometheus's liver always grew back, and he would regenerate from all wounds caused by Zeus's birds.
