SUMMARY

Pandora stands stiffly facing forward, in form like a statue, as the gods approach one by one to bestow upon her. Aphrodite is in the process of adorning her with a myrtle wreath. Beside her stands Poseidon with trident, and on the other side Ares with spear and shield. Several other gods also appear in the scene, including Hephaistos, Athene, Zeus and Hermes (not shown).
