The Knossos consolle refers to the palace of Knossos in Crete, the seat of the Minoan civilization.
The palace is linked to ancient myths of classical Greece, such as Minos and the labyrinth built by Daedalus, and that of Theseus and the Minotaur. Legend has it that Minos, king of Crete, had a labyrinth built to enclose the Minotaur born from the union of his wife with a bull.
The work consists of two fluted columns casted in bronze grafted into a fragment of a classical architrave in Marmo di Rima made with a color palette based on the shades of the ruins of the Minoan palace.
