Description

Ariadne was the daughter of King Minos of Crete. When Theseus arrived to fight Minataurus, Ariadne gave him a roll of yarn. As he got deeper into the maze, he rolled more and more nets and could be back again after killing the bulls head monster. King Minos was furious of Ariadne’s help and Ariadne took off with Theseus. But Theseus betrayed her and left her on the island of Dia. Ariadne was not alone for long, soon arrived Dionysus to the island and he married her. They lived happily together and had many children. In Greek Mythology, the Labyrinth was an elaborate structure designed and built by the legendary artificer Daedalus for King Minos of Crete at Knossos. Its function was to hold the Minotaur, a mythical creature that was half man and half bull. Throughout the ages, maze, used as a motif for music, literature, visual arts, film, theatre, etc. and it is used in architecture, religion, philosophy and psychology. Ariadne’s thread, named for the legend of Ariadne, is the solving of a problem with multiple apparent means of proceeding – such as a physical maze, a logic puzzle, or an ethical dilemma – through an exhaustive application of logic to all available routes.
