We have bounced back and forth in time and traveled around the globe over the last few days, but our artistic adventure celebrating this summer's "Horse of a Different Color" BreyerFest is far from complete.
Today, we are inspired by the classics and are traveling back to ancient Greece. Meet Knossos!
This handsome bull was inspired by the Bull-Leaping Fresco at the Palace of Knossos in Crete, which dates back to 1450 BCE. The beautifully-restored artwork features three figures engaging in an activity known only as “bull leaping,” but the purpose of this activity has been lost to history. Based on art styles from the period, scholars have determined that the pale figures in the fresco are women, while the darker, leaping figure is a man. You can learn more about this fascinating sport and culture from which it comes here.
