Minoa to the Moon

I made this piece with three ideas in mind- First it marks the starting point of Western civilization with a Minoan Bull. Minoas was known to be one of the first and most developed civilizations in the pre-Greecen world. This small but vibrant civilization worshiped both the bull and celestial realms. I used a fresco image of a bull found at a Minoan ruin for proportion reference. The moon for me symbolizes one of the pinnacles of modern achievement, mans journey to the moon. I used NASAs 1960s images as a reference point for the moon. Lastly it relates to the nursery rhyme, “The Cow Jumped Over The Moon” which when it was written was supposed to be a sort of absurd comical statement, but has since entered the realm of possibly.
