Pandora's box is an artifact from Greek mythology. It was actually a small jar that inside held all the evil in the world. Pandora was the first woman on Earth created by Hephaestus (the god of craftsmanship) out of water and earth after being ordered to by Zeus. She was gifted many things by the gods but after being gifted the jar she was told to NEVER open it, however, she was also gifted curiosity by the gods so Pandora ended up opening the jar. All the evils were released except for one. The one thing left in the jar was hope. Earth was plagued by the contents of Pandora's Box.
