Overcome with curiosity, Brian thoughtlessly opened the box, only to realise his mistake too late, having released sickness, death and evil into the snail world.

The story of Pandora's Box originates from Greek mythology and has come to refer to doing something that will cause many unforeseen problems.

For Macro Mondays theme 'Vintage'. This is an antique powder compact passed on to me from my mother. From a little research, it seems to be of Victorian vintage, made using the ormolu technique of gilding with gold. A piece of blue paper was set up behind the sheet of reflective Perspex and a headtorch was shone on the blue paper to provide the background light. Some cotton wool was placed inside the box for a mysterious appearance. The image was cropped to be within the MM size limit.

No snails were harmed in the making of this photograph.
