Prometheus Picture

And now for something a bit more Greek.

Prometheus is the Titan in Greek mythology who stole fire and gave it to humans, and was punished for it by having an eagle come and eat his liver everyday until Hercules saved him.

Personally, Prometheus to me symbolizes the scientists who have made great discoveries, but ended up being prosecuted for their ideas. People like Galileo, Copernicus and the rest. Ignorance, jealousy or even the desire to keep everyone as ignorant as yourself is the reason these things happen. I am thankful this doesn't happen so much still does to some degree though.

I used references for the anatomy, in keeping with the classical theme. I suppose that's why it looks a bit different.

I'd say the poor guy is getting tired of the eagle by about now.
