MOTTO: PANDORA'S BOX
Image on this piece is Pandora opening the fabled box surrounded by the Latin inscription:
"Nocuit Secreta Vidisse"
(Tis dangerous to pry into secrets.)
The story goes: Zeus had given the box to Pandora as a gift on her wedding day and told her to never open it. Curiosity got the best of her one day and she opened the box releasing Greed, Malice, Despair, Disease, Old Age, Hatred, Violence, Cruelty and War into the world. She slammed the lid down keeping only the spirit of Hope in the box. This piece is reminder that even when things seem really bad, the only thing we have left is hope.....Hope Conquers All.
