ΕΜΠΝΕΥΣΗ
SOURCE OF INSPIRATION
In Greek Mythology, the Labyrinth was a complex construction designed by Daedalus in the depths of the palace of Knossos, upon King Minos’ demand, in order to imprison the Minotaur, his half man and half bull son with queen Pasiphae, his wife. According to legend, the queen, daughter of sun-God Helios, brought him into the world by mating with a white bull, sent by Poseidon. In the photo, a coin of Knossos with a drawing of the Labyrinth.
