Default June, 2007: Labyrinth

Ok... June's contest subject: Labyrinth.

here are some definitions from google:

1. maze: complex system of paths or tunnels in which it is easy to get lost

2. In Greek mythology, the Labyrinth was an elaborate maze constructed for King Minos of Crete and designed by the legendary artificer Daedalus to hold the Minotaur, a creature that was half man and half bull and was eventually killed by the Athenian hero Theseus. Theseus was aided by Ariadne, who provided him with a fateful thread to wind his way back again.

3. Labyrinth is an Italian power metal band. (who knew?)

good luck!

edit: Winners Announced!

Phew, this was a tough one. Really an excellent job by so many more artists that we could choose... but the decision has been made and here are the winners:



Thanks to everyone who participated.

-Alex

Awards Showcase

Default labyrinth

It was also a pretty cool Henson movie in which David Bowie walked in MC Escher art while wearing tight purple pants. I can't wait to see what some of the people come up with for this one.

Talking Under the Labyrinth

This is the Disk of Phaistos, founding of Minoan Era.
Among other theories of its usage, there is one which says that the Disk was the Key to open and seal the Labyrinth's Gate.
On its sides those ideograms haven't been fully translated yet but according to the myth, those are the map to find the Golden Taurus which is hidden somewhere into the Great Labyrinth (under the Knossos's Labyrinth in which Minotaur was the Guardian)



That was the myth of Disk of Phaistos and the Great Labyrinth...
if anyone could draw something based on the myth, it would be nice...

Good luck to all...!
