Prometheus

Daily Post Weekly Challenge- Scale

Paul Manship‘s highly recognizable bronze of the Greek legend of the Titan Prometheus recumbent, bringing fire to mankind. The model for Prometheus was Leonardo (Leon) Nole, and the inscription, a paraphrase from Aeschylus, on the granite wall behind, reads:

“Prometheus, teacher in every art, brought the fire that hath proved to mortals a means to mighty ends.”

I liked the angle from the back of Prometheus showing the scale of how large the statue is.
