Pandora
The First Human Woman & the Source of All Evil

After overthrowing the Titans, Zeus asked Hephaestus to create a human woman out of the soil.  This was part of the punishment of mankind, because Prometheus had stolen the secret of fire.  She was modeled after Aphrodite and given life.  She was showered with special godly gifts including beauty, cunning, curiosity, musical abilities and gardening skills.

Hermès gave Pandora a box for a wedding present but with a condition that she never open it.  Pandora could not stop thinking about the box. She eventually opened it only to discover as the flip side of all the wonderful gifts bestowed on her, the gods had packed calamities into the box.  Pandora was held responsible for releasing the ills of humanity into the world.  The name Pandora means “gifts” and “all”.
