The Minotaur is a tragic tale told by Ovid in one of his epic tales. Although short, the story is fascinating. Minos is the king of Crete and his wife is Pasiphae. A curse was placed on Pasiphae by Poseidon that caused her to fall in love with the favorite white bull of her husband, Minos. In order to fulfill her lust, Pasiphae enlists the help of Daedalus to make a cow so that she could mate with the white bull. The result was Minotaur, a creature with the head of a bull and the body of a man.

Theseus, Edward Burne-Jones (knock knock...)

Theseus - Edward Burne-Jones - WikiArt.org

‘Theseus’ was created by Edward Burne-Jones in Romanticism style. Find more prominent pieces of mythological painting at Wikiart.org – best visual art database.

Greek Mythology - Minotaur: The Minotaur (whose real name was Asterion, ‘starry one’, giving a link to the constellation Taurus) was the child of Queen Pasiphaë, wife of King Minos of Crete and Poseidon’s Bull from the Sea, with whom (depending on the account) either Posiedon or Aphrodite had caused her to fall in love as a punishment. The inventor Daedalus helped Pasiphaë to make love with her bovine suitor, which is why Minos had him thrown into prison.

Theseus and the Minotaur myth serves as the classical source of inspiration for the Hunger Games. In the myth Minos forces Athens to sacrifice 7 youths and 7 maidens to the Minotaur which kills them within a vast labyrinth. Theseus emerges the victor when he kills the Minotaur.

The Beginning: King Minos, Pasiphae, Poseidon, Daedalus and the white bull

"Knossos" The palace of Minotaur In Greek mythology King Minos dwelt in a palace at Knossos. He had Daedalus construct a labyrinth (by some connected with the double-bladed axe or labrys) in which to retain his son the Minotaur. Daedalus also built a dancing floor for Queen Ariadne (Homer Iliad 18.590-2). The name "Knossos" was subsequently adopted by Arthur Evans because it seemed to fit the local archaeology. The identification has never been credibly questioned mainly because of that…
