Minotaurus Alexander Kanevsky’s “Minotaurus” painted in oil on 122 x 122 cm wooden panel in 2000 represents Alexander’s conceptualization of the Myth of Minotaurus – part man part bull living in labyrinth of Ancient Greek City Delphy, consuming its inhabitants as sacrifices. Minotaurus was killed by Theseus. In this conglomerate, like in a mortar, are remnants of consumed citizens, eyes of Minotaurus and Theseus, Minotaur’s soul as a bird and Minotaurus immutability as a fish. The painting is a part of the Album “Kanevsky: Genius of Vision”
