In Greek mythology, the Minotaur is a mythical creature portrayed in classical times with the head and tail of a bull and body of a man. As the Roman poet Ovid describes him, he is part man and part bull.

The fabulous monster of Crete was the offspring of Pasiphae, the wife of Minos. The god Poseidon sent the Minotaur to Minos for sacrifice. But Minos kept it alive.

But after a series of events, Minos ordered Daedalus and his son Icarus to build a huge maze to house the beast.

The Minotaur has a big place in Greek mythology. But the image of the Minotaur made it to modern times as well. This is the story of the Minotaur. Of course, most of it is mythology.
