Artist's description:

There was once a period of myths and legends, while this painting took insperation from the story of Pandora, The original story was that she was given a present which she should never open due, Which she did in the end and released unknown evils into the world.

This painting touches on the moment that she just cant resist opening the box, use of the modern twist of a presesnt wraped up in silver and ribbon, she's naked only to be a sort of a temptress to the evil inside us all for the sexual wanting and allure. There is also a Greek/Roman vase in the painting as from the story they were unsure of which the evils came from.

The painting was painted by building up thin layers of oil paints like in the classical painters from the italian Renaissance period
