    See all of this powerful image (it's cropped here) and read about the artisitic collaboration that produced it:  Look for the fire in the bottom left corner. Prometheus felt compassion for man and gave him fire.  This saved the human race and brought on Zeus' anger.  Prometheus was a hero but was found guilty of disobedience and severely punished.
