  • The double axe or labrys was a recurrent motif in the art and jewellery of the Minoans. It especially associated with priestesses, and to find a labrys in the hands of a Minoan woman indicated that she held a powerful position within this colourful, artistic and sophisticated culture, which flourished on Crete and on Santorini ca 2700-1500 BC.


    The labrys today is a symbol of feminist strength, strong women, and of the kinship of lesbian women around the world.
