This group is for those who are interested in the minotaur creature and its associated legends. From it's original mythology to the similar races in stories, games and films of today.
All art styles and skill levels are accepted, providing it has something to do with the Minotaur or minotaur-like creatures. No mature content please.
The Minotaur is the creature from the ancient Greek story of King Minos. The Minotaur (name translating to Bull of Minos) was created by the union of King Minos' wife Pasiphae and a divine white bull, sent by Poseiden, that was to be sacrificed by Minos in his name. Minos refused to sacrifice it, and so Pasiphae was cursed to fall in love with the bull. The Minotaur was born to her, and once it grew to an adult, Minos had Daedalus construct a maze in which to keep the Minotaur. It was here that he was eventually slain by Theseus.
But over the years and to this day, the minotaur has developed into something more, appearing in many stories, games and films. Where he originally was one creature, thought as an abomination, he has become many things, such as whole races, recurring as a boss to fight in games, a metaphor for human nature and many other creative facets.
