    Minos, judge of the dead

    Chow 98 :: Minos :: Final Burning

    cited from the wikipedia :

    In Greek mythology, Minos (in Greek Μίνως, genitive Μίνω) was a mythical king of Crete, son of Zeus and Europa. After his death, Minos became a judge of the dead in Hades.

    On Cretan coins, Minos is represented as bearded, wearing a diadem, curly-haired, haughty and dignified, like the traditional portraits of his reputed father, Zeus.

    In Michelangelo's famous fresco, The Last Judgment (located in the Sistine Chapel), Minos appears as judge of the under-world, surrounded by a crowd of devils. With a snake coiled around him, Minos watches as the damned are brought down to hell.

    Cool

    HOLDING HIS LOVE [IMAGINATION]

    SOURCE; WIKIPEDIA link
    APPEARANCE

    On Cretan coins, Minos is represented as bearded, wearing a diadem, curly-haired, haughty and dignified, like the traditional portraits of his reputed father, Zeus. On painted vases and sarcophagus bas-reliefs he frequently occurs with Aeacus and Rhadamanthus as judges of the under-world and in connection with the Minotaur and Theseus.

    STORY ABOUT HIS LOVE
    Asterios, king of Crete, adopted the three sons of Zeus and Europa, Minos, Sarpedon and Rhadamanthus. In adulthood, the three brothers quarreled over a beautiful boy they were all in love with, by the name of Miletus, son of Apollo and Areia. The youth however preferred Sarpedon, so Minos in revenge went to war and conquered the whole island. Sarpedon and Miletus escaped to Lycia, where Miletus founded the city that bore his name. Other mythographers claimed that the beloved youth's name was Atymnios, and that he was the son of Zeus and Cassiopeia.

    This second Minos - the 'bad' king Minos - is the son of this Lycastus, and was a far more colorful character than his father and grandfather. It is to this Minos ('Minos II') that we owe the myths of Theseus, Pasiphaë, the Minotaur, Daedalus, Glaucus, and Nisus. Unlike Minos I, Minos II fathered numerous children, including Androgeus, Catreus, Deucalion, Ariadne, Phaedra, and Glaucus - all born to him by his wife Pasiphaë. He was the grandfather of King Idomeneus, who led the Cretans to the Trojan War.

    I actually got my sources of inspiration from 3 web sites:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minos
    http://www.pbase.com/rainmax/image/34830182
    http://www.sights-and-culture.com/Crete/Knossos.html

    The archaeological photographs helped me keep his costume simple, with blue accents noted for Minoan royalty.

    Wikipedia:The solar explanation of Minos as the sun-god has been thrown into the background by the recent discoveries. In any case a divine origin would naturally be claimed for him as a priest-king, and a divine atmosphere hangs about him. The name of his wife, Pasiphae ("the all-shining"), is an epithet of the moon-goddess. The name Minos seems to be philologically the equivalent of Minyas, the royal ancestor of the Minyans of Orchomenus, and his daughter Ariadne ("the exceeding holy") is a double of the native nature-goddess.

    Minos, Once step-father to the mighty Minotaur. Minos, now a judge of dead, reflects on the death of his step-son, beast, and guilt.


    references:
    Minos (in Greek Μίνως, genitive Μίνω) was a mythical king of Crete, son of Zeus and Europa. After his death, Minos became a judge of the dead in Hades.
    - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minos

    Minos was challenged as king and prayed to Poseidon for help. Poseidon sent a giant white bull out of the sea. Minos planned on sacrificing the bull to Poseidon, but then decided not to. He substituted a different bull. In rage, Poseidon cursed Pasiphaë, Minos' wife, with zoophilia. Daedalus built her a wooden cow, which she hid inside. The bull mated with the wooden cow and Pasiphaë was impregnated by the bull, giving birth to a horrible monster, the Minotaur(half man half bull).
    - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minos

    Also...my mind, ive read alot on mythos and remember the story of the minotaur very well. Anything with tricking a bull rape to get raped some how stays in my head...

    Chow 98 :: Minos :: Final Burning

    reference- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minos
    To reconcile the contradictory aspects of his character, as well as to explain how Minos governed Crete over a period spanning so many generations, two kings of the name of Minos were assumed by later poets and mythologists. According to this view, the first King Minos was the son of Zeus and Europa and brother of Rhadamanthys and Sarpedon. This was the 'good' king Minos, and he was held in such esteem by the Olympian gods that, after he died, he was made one of the three 'Judges of the Dead', alongside his brother Rhadamanthys and half-brother Aeacus. The wife of this Minos ('Minos I') was said to be Itone (daughter of Lyctius) or Crete (a nymph or daughter of his stepfather Asterion), and he had a single son named [Lycastus], his successor as King of Crete.
