"There lie, and feed thy pride on this bare rock" - Aeschylus' "Prometheus Bound" (translation by John Stuart Blackie)
These words are spoken to a silent Prometheus by the embodiment of Might after he and Force have restrained the titan. A reluctant Hephaestus, by order of Zeus, has crafted unbreakable chains, and has bound Prometheus to a crag of inhospitable rock at the edges of the world. His crime - defying Zeus and giving fire to mortals. With fire, they would develop arts and sciences, raising them above the beasts and rivaling the gods.
Here I envision the long suffering titan as crag-like and mountainous as the rocks on which he has been bound, nevertheless enduring and defiant.
