Daedalus & Icarus

The name Daedalus means “Cunning Worker”, whose most cunning work may have been the wings he created from feathers and wax so he and his young son Icarus could escape from King Minos who had imprisoned them to prevent the secret of the labyrinth leaving Crete.

Orestes, the son of Clytemnestra and Agamemnon, avenged his father's murder by his mother, by killing his mother.

A krater is a very large vase that was used to mix wine and water for a ‘symposium’, which originally meant a drinking party.

Aesop's Fables are short stories using personified animals to tell a cautionary tale, a moral lesson, a rule of behavior. Over 200 fables have been attributed to Aesop, who was possibly a Greek slave of African descent c. 600 BC. The word Aesop means Ethiop in Ancient Greek.

Zorba's Dance, Alfred Gockel, Art Print

Zorba the Greek (1946) is a novel written by Nikos Kazantzakis. The character ‘Alexis Zorba’ represents the Dionysus spirit of ecstatic, spontaneous will to live opposed to the young Greek intellectual narrator's order and rationality represented by the Greek god Apollo (see Nietzsche).

Kazantzakis (b. 2-18-1883, Crete; d. 10-26-1957, Germany), considered by some the most important Greek philosopher of the 20th century, his epitaph reads "I hope for nothing. I fear nothing. I am free."
