Everyone knows the story about how Pandora opened a box (which was actually a jar, not a box) and let all sorts of evil things out into the world. However, in Ancient Greece, women were associated with jars and vessels, and a pregnant woman was called 'a closed jar'. In the original story of Pandora, Hope is in the jar with the evil things, but gets trapped when Pandora closes the lid and shuts the jar. This all gave me the idea that maybe Pandora was pregnant, and Hope the child within her, symbolic of the possibilities that all unborn children hold.
