Behind the scenes

  • In Greek mythology, the Minotaur was a monster that was half-man and half-bull named Asterion (or Asterius, in different sources). He was the son of Pasiphaë, the queen of Crete, and a white-headed bull offered by Poseidon for sacrifice, who instead was kept alive by Minos, the king of Crete, who sacrificed another bull instead. As punishment, Poseidon made Pasiphae fall in love with the bull, and the Minotaur was born. To Minos' horror and disgust, he asked the inventor Daedalus to create a labyrinth. There, the Minotaur was imprisoned, until he was slain by Theseus, an Athenian hero.
