More Info

Pandora originates in Greek language and means "all-gifted". In Greek mythology, she was the first woman on Earth, created by different gods and getting a gift from each of them to her jar which she was not supposed to open. Out of simple curiosity, Pandora opened the jar and let all the evils of mankind loose. The expression of 'Pandora's box' instead of a 'jar' prevailed until present day due to a wrong translation in the 16th century. These days, opening Pandora's box means to release something evil that cannot be undone.
