Horns of Consecration – Sacred horns of the bull at the Knossos Palace
The image shows the structure resembling the bull horns built on the archeological site at Knossos, which is located on the Greek island of Crete.
Sir Arthur Evans, the British archaeologist who excavated the site, built this structure based on his observation that many buildings at Knossos had bull horns like structures built on top of them. He named the structure Horns of Consecration because the bull played an important role in Minoan religion and everyday life.
