Ariadne and Theseus by fiveplustwo

Ariadne and Theseus

There stood the fighter,
The killed beast, the princess
To be forgotten.

Last belated post for the theme: Greek myths.
@domenicododaro and the relieved and bravest @kerosene

P.S.: No Minotaurs were harmed in making this shot.
Very good! And look at the location.

@overalvandaan thank you, Saxa! The place is the throne room in the Palace of Knossos, actually a photo of public domaiyn, not mine!
@helenhall the issue is: our animal part must be denied or embraced? In real life, I am for the second. The myth is clearly for the first... those Athenians...
@vignouse much appreciated, Richard, thank you!
@kali66 thank you. Ties that build up across the oceans.
@mikegifford thank you a lot, Mike!
@summerfield oh sure, he asked for another part, namely in “The bull and Alcmena” or “Kidnapping Europa” but the director directed otherwise... thank you a lot, friend!

Id just like to add that this backdrop showed up in my dreams last night and I was mighty impressed with how you had manipulated it to create your two scenes.

@helenhall oh, this is fascinating, Helen! I think the Knossos Palace is one of the most striking places, also for its being the theater of such powerful myths (the Labyrinth, Daedalus and Icarus, the Minotaur, Theseus and Ariadne....). Glad of having interpreted it in the right way! Thank you!

@domenicododaro oh Domenico, what a fantastic composite! You have done so incredibly well with the blending of all things - amazing photo! Relieved indeed - until the island of Naxos incident ;) Are you sure I can't fav this??!!

@kerosene Thank you, dear Caroline! I admit I am rather satisfied with the result, considering that: 1) your side of the rope was held by my daughter in our living room; 2) my side of the rope was photographed separately; 3) the head of the bull was sturdily placed on the relevant body when I photographed him in Sardinia; 4) the sword was also taken on the web, as I don't possess other than my saber of when I was a Chivalry Lieutenant - not fit as a greek fighting dagger; 5) my skirt was made with a runner we use on our dining room table... lol
