Taurokathapsia, Knossos

This is a copy from a fresco painting in Knossos!

Bull-leaping (Ancient Greek: ταυροκαθάψια, taurokathapsia[1]) is a form of non-violent bull fighting based on an ancient ritual involving an acrobat leaping over the back of a charging bull (or cow). Bull-leaping is thought to have been a key ritual in the religion of the Minoan civilization in Bronze AgeCrete. As in the case of other Mediterranean civilizations, the bull was the subject of veneration and worship. Representation of the Bull at the palace of Knossos is a widespread symbol in the art and decoration of this archaeological site. (Source WIKIPEDIA)
