Minotaur figure, Greece

Minotaur, Greece

Brass Minotaur statuette collected by Una at The KnossosPalace on Crete, Greece, 2005

Part of my travel collection of small figurines I call “Little Gods”.

“Some modern mythologists regard the Minotaur as a solar personification and a Minoan adaptation of the Baal-Moloch of the Phoenicians. The slaying of the Minotaur by Theseus in that case indicates the breaking of Athenian tributary relations with Minoan Crete.” (Quote Source)
