2 Daedalus Sculptor and architect

3 He invented and built… The axe, the bevel, and the awl. He built statues and mazes.

4 Labyrinth Daedalus designed mazes “whose winding passages opened one into another as if without beginning, as if without end.”

5 Daedalus was exiled Exiled means that you are not welcome to a place again. Daedalus was kicked out of his home town.

6 Island of Crete

7 King Minos King Minos tells Daedalus to build him a labyrinth to hide his son. His son is a Minotaur. “He eats human flesh…in a maze I could keep him hidden forever.”

8 Minotaur By Nico Diaz “His name is minotaur. He has a bull’s head but a man’s body. He eats human flesh.”

9 “ Every seven years Athens must send a tribute of boys and girls to King Minos. He puts them into the labyrinth you devised and the monster Minotaur devours them there.”
