Here it is a sculpture: "Theseus fighting the minotaur" dating from 1826. The minotaur is a male figure with a bull's head. This monster was born from the embraces of Pasiphae and the bull sent to Crete by Poseidon. In fact, it is a legend and this sculpture depicts the Athenian hero who managed to kill the animal in the maze built by Daedalus on the orders of King Minos. This sculpture was placed in the garden in 1832 and is one of the statues maintained by the Louvre Under the number LL 448. For more information on the legend of this minotaur, which dates back to the 8th century BC, a bronze statue exists in the Louvre Museum, Department of Greek, Etruscan and Roman Antiquities: Archaic Greek Art, Bronze Room No. 663 in wing Sully
Bon... patience , il faut comprendre cette œuvre en retournant aux études mythologiques de la Grèce antique …. Thésée ( fils du Dieu Apollon , qui est le Dieu du Soleil , des Arts , de la Beauté Mascu... more »good... patience, it is necessary to understand this work by going back to the mythological studies of ancient Greece .... Theseus (son of the God Apollo, who is the God of the Sun, of the Arts, of Male Beauty, Poetry, etc.) and who is Athenian, takes care of going to kill the Minotaur, monster half man half bull, who is locked in the maze of the island of Crete. The daughter of the King of Crete, Ariane, in love with Theseus, helps him to navigate the maze by giving him a thread to find his way back (myth known from The Thread of Ariadne). After killing the Minotaur with his dagger, Theseus can easily get out of the maze. In fact, the story continues, but it is better to stop there !!! This large-scale white marble sculpted work dates from 1892 by the sculptor Laurent Honoré Marqueste (1848-1920) who has created many works exhibited in the garden. Greek mythology is present in the Arts in the 19th century, as a return to the "Old Orders" in a world that values materialism and technological progress. This work is located on the north side of the Grand Basin of the Tuileries garden, towards Rue de Rivoli. The metro station "Tuileries" line No. 1, serves the garden.
