The myth of Atlas

The myth of Atlas, a Titan condemned to hold up the sky or the world for eternity, is a poignant symbol of endurance, strength, and the weight of responsibility. In Greek mythology, Atlas was punished by Zeus for his role in the Titanomachy, the war between the Titans and the Olympian gods, with the task of bearing the heavens on his shoulders. This image has transcended ancient tales to become a universal symbol of resilience and the human condition's burdens.

Atlas's enduring stance, carrying the world, reflects the themes of perpetual struggle and the acceptance of one's duties. It embodies the idea that individuals often carry heavy burdens, whether they be responsibilities, challenges, or the complexities of life itself. In a broader sense, Atlas's figure represents the strength to persevere and the courage to shoulder one's obligations without faltering, echoing the Stoic virtues of resilience in the face of adversity and the importance of fulfilling one's role in the world with dignity and strength.
