MINOTAUR | Pastel Painting by STRIX

MINOTAUR by STRIX https://www.camellia.design/strix/minotaur

In the dark labyrinth an abomination waits.​ The mythical Minotaur is a creature of nightmares pulled from ancient legend, a monstrous hybrid of man and bull. Colossal in his proportions and strength, this frenzied beast was crazed with lust for slaughter and human flesh. King Minos of Crete, hid this cursed creature within an endless labyrinth beneath his city, and every seven years demanded that his defeated rivals the Athenians send tribute to him in the form of their sons and daughters. The supplicants were subsequently cast into the infamous maze to feed the monster’s insatiable hunger and thereby save their city. To create this work the artist used pastel and white gouache on textured board.
