As usual, Basile Boon takes the various ancient myths and gives them his own contemporary and singular version. Before creating Man from clay, the titan Prometheus must have made drafts. Boon puts himself in the shoes of the titan who creates and organizes living creatures, in order to introduce us to... Men. Weak and defenseless animals of which he will have mercy by offering them fire to survive. They are now bearers of divine light as well as human weakness: the collection shows the ambivalence of these beings, ideally celestial but noticeably earthly.
