The Minotaur has been variously depicted in art and sculpture through the ages, with the bestial and the human in varying proportions. The hybrid offspring of Pasiphae (wife of King Minos of Crete) and a bull, was killed by Theseus, with the help of Minos' daughter, Ariadne.

  • about the bronze collection

    The bronze pieces are cast in Greece using the traditional lost wax method. As nothing is mass-produced, there will inevitably be slight variations in texture, patina, and colour. No two pieces are ever the same. If mounted on a marble base, it will be a black or very dark grey base. There may be a variation of some millimetres in the dimensions of the base from time to time.

    It's All Greek is proud to have been working with the Semitekolo family foundry since 1999. It has been a privilege to handle these gorgeous pieces and to sell them to customers all over the world.

    The original bronze figurine from Olympia, dating to ca 730-700 BC, is in the Louvre, Paris. This is probably the oldest depiction of the Minotaur. (Thank you to a recent customer for this information! She had been searching for this exact piece!)
