Through studying Ancient Greece in my Creative Design Practices module I have focused on the significance of the bull in Greek society and mythology.
Bull and cattle were a crucial part of society as they fed the people and were seen as powerful creatures that were close to the Gods.
The Minotaur, is said to have been half man, half bull and was born to Queen Pasiphae of Crete after she supposedly coupled with a bull.
The King of Crete later built a labyrinth that was the lair of the minotaur, the King sacrificed many of his people to appease the bull.
