Minos by JessiBeans Minos by JessiBeans
CHOW #98 - King Minos
www.ConceptArt.org

The King of Crete, step father of the Minotaur (his wife was made mad and cursed with zoophilia because Minos would not sacrifice a magnificent white bull to Poseidon, she then mated with the bull and produced the Minotaur monster of legend.) Also, in Dante's inferno, he is made a judge of the dead.

Nice use of the bull horn crown. Very symbolic of Minos' power and tyranny, and symbolic to his maniacal demand to the Athenians to have them sacrificed to the Minotaur.
