Pandora is looking at the lid of the sealed jar that was given to her by the gods when they sent her to earth to punish Prometheus for having angered Zeus by giving fire to mankind. Pandora was given a jar (not a box as is often said as in "Pandora's box") filled with all the misfortunes of existence. She was told not to open the jar but she was overcome by curiosity and opened the lid and let loose all the those misfortunes. The only thing left in the jar was hope.
