In Greek mythology, the Minotaur is a mythical creature portrayed in Classical times with the head and tail of a bull and the body of a man or, as described by Roman poet Ovid, a being "part man and part bull". He dwelt at the center of the Labyrinth, which was an elaborate maze-like construction designed by the architect Daedalus and his son Icarus, on the command of King Minos of Crete. The Minotaur was eventually killed by the Athenian hero Theseus. The Minotaur is born of the arrogance of man to the gods. Ever since his birth, the Minotaur is used as a symbol of power and a tool for death and torture. He never is shown love and kills to live since the sacrifices are his only food. He is killed and his severed head is used as a symbol.
