Sport inspires artists  

Having overcome the stage of survival, man feels the need for expression in various ways, such as the arts and sports. During the Bronze Age, in the Minoan civilization and elsewhere there was a sport known as “Tavrokathapsia” (bull-leaping), where athletes had to execute leaps and acrobatic exercises on the back of a bull, showing off their daring and flexibility. This daring inspired artists, who captured the athletes’ deeds in their works of art. One such work of art is the famous wall fresco in the palace of Knossos, in Crete.
