A Greek Fresco: Bull Leaping June 28, 2015Posted by anagasto in history.
Leaping bull photo made by Saskia Ltd, Thomson Wadsworth in public domain according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Knossos_bull.jpg
The fresco is from a palace in Knossos on Crete in Greece.
Bull leaping still exists. I have never seen it, but while looking for information on fresco painting, I found a video showing young men leaping over a raging bull: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1L-8xLI_5c
It is awful to watch even on a little video like this.
