The gift of Fire.

Greek Mythological Story : The gift of Fire.


Fire being so important to us, it is not surprising that several mythologies of the world contain references to how fire was first revealed to or obtained by man.

In Polynesian mythology it was the god Maui who gave fire to mortals after stealing it from the fire goddess.

Prometheus of Greek mythology too stole fire from the gods to give to man.

The Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert have their own legend about fire. Interestingly, in their tale, man gets fire through his own efforts and not through the kindness of any god.
