(Fans of mysterious religious symbols, read below. Best to wait before swiping>>)
#~
Sometimes my "museum scavenger hunts" start with confusion: I'll see something strange, not understand it, and take a photo hoping (usually in vain) that in the future there'll be reason to go back and see it in another light.
#~
This was the case in Athens, and later Mycenae, where I saw several examples like slides 1 & 2: human figures with weird, double moon/crescent shapes. All from like 1300-800BC. WTF, I wondered, was up with that? Click, click goes the camera.
#~
Later, in Heraklion, there were tons of examples of the Minoan double-axe (slide 3), which I vaguely remembered from having read my "History of Religious Ideas" some years back, though a quick reminder was helpful. (BTW, kindles rule when traveling.) Context: "The double ax was certainly used in sacrifices. It is found ... outside of Crete. In Asia Minor, as symbol of the thunderbolt, it is the emblem of the storm god... in Iraq... In Crete, [it] is seen in the hands of women... or on their heads." (Eliade, vol 1, ch 43).
#~
It is called the labrys, and is THE emblem of Minoan religion (slide 4, with "horns of consecration"). It's connected etymologically to the word labyrinth, tied to early Minoan goddess worship, and some 1500+ years later used in Roman images as the weapon of choice for Amazons. 
#~
But it wasn't until I saw the crescent figures again (slide 5), in a small museum in Siteia, in a case immediately after slide 4, that I made the connection. Somewhere along the line, and just for a couple hundred years, this double axe got integrated into the human figure. I still don't know why, or what that means, but at least the mystery of of the funky human figures I first saw in 9thC BC pottery in Athens was solved. 
#~
And who knows, maybe in a few more weeks or years, something else will pop up to add another connection to this weird little symbol. (Slides 6-10 are more labrys examples.)

#tbt to a holiday in Greece with Tiffany in 2014. 🐬 I’m sitting with two girlfriends who convinced me to post this as my throwback… this photo is definitely inspiring me to do more leg lifts and planks and anything else I can do to get my abs ready again for summertime fun!  What are you folks doing to get in  your best and happiest shape this spring?  Great photo capture @tiffanytrump #mmmoments #crete
