Ariadne’s Forgiveness


Materials used: foam, raffia, wooden pin, paint.

Assemblage based on the Greek Myth:

Ariadne was the daughter of King Minos of Crete, who built the Labyrinth for Minotaur, a half man-half beast with the head of a bull and body of a man.  Athenian youth were given as human sacrifice to Minotaur every nine years. Theseus volunteered to save the Athenians by  killing the beast. Ariadne fell in love with the handsome Theseus, and helped him by giving him a sword and a ball of thread that helped him find his way out of the Labyrinth after killing Minotaur. Theseus promised to take  Ariadne with him to Athens and marry her. However,  on their way home he abandoned the heartbroken Ariadne on the island of Naxos.
