This is my "apocryphal" interpretation of the ancient myth of the Minotaur, who lived in the Knossos Labyrinth, and of Princess Ariadne. The hero Theseus had to come and free Ariadne, killing the Minotaur in the maze. But according to my version, Theseus was in for a surprise - Ariadne and the Minotaur were already happy together. If you look closely, you can found the Theseus figure. Nietzsche considered Ariadne a dark magical female archetype. And the Minotaur - a magical masculine archetype. They must unite, despite morality.
