About The song
The mythology of the painting by Jean Cousin dated 1550 titled:
Eva Prima Pandora
The author creates a curious symbiosis between a painting with a mythological theme and a painting with a religious theme.
The work is identified by a poster that relates the mythological character of Pandora , the first woman and origin of the evils of the human race according to Greek mythology , with the biblical Eve , also a participant in the fall of the human race into sin.
In the painting are the symbols of the skull , alluding to the death related to the protagonist, the serpent entangled in the left arm, which recalls the biblical story of the serpent’s deception of Eve in Paradise , the branch of apple tree reminiscent of the forbidden fruit and the jug that points to Pandora’s box from which the evils of humanity emerged.
Since early Christian art was developed, the Greek myth was related to the biblical account of Genesis as both women, Eva and Pandora, symbol of curiosity and responsibility in the fall of the human being.
How EVA PRIMA PANDORA came about.
The creation of this album was inspired by Nick Katona, Owner of Melodic Revolution Records.
Nick called me one day “says Steve Bonino” with an idea for a collaborative album called ‘Troubleshooting Pandora’s Box’.
It would incorporate songs written and performed by various artist including Melodic Revolution Records artists and would center around the myth of Pandora’s Box, hopefully to be released as an album on MRR, but would start out as individual songs being released as singles.
I submitted one song which he liked and I was inspired by the subject matter so I kept writing. I submitted a second, a third, a fourth and after the sixth submission, all of which received his thumbs up, I approached Nick with the concept of releasing a complete ‘The Steve Bonino Project’ album based on the Pandora myth to be released on MRR. He kindly agreed and so here is ‘The Steve Bonino Project’ interpretation of the Pandora’s Box myth titled ‘Eva Prima Pandora ’.
Thank you, Nick Katona for the inspiration!
