10 Plate 2

Plate 2: The Silence of Prometheus, by Jeff Temple, Arthur, Ontario. Prometheus, as we know, stole fire from the heavens and is depicted in mythology as the hero who brought civilization and the arts to man. For punishment, he was chained by Jupiter to a mountain where eagles ate his liver away, but the liver was renewed as fast as it was devoured.The Silence of Prometheus shows that the drama in modern times has moved from the liver to the head and that man's mythological' memories can help safeguard him from the attacking eagles of a new world order at the end of time.
