The following is a reblog from The Labyrinthine Journey Infographic by Luciana Cavalarro that introduces an infographic of her upcoming Book 2 in the Servant of the Gods series and of the various places the reluctant hero Evan and his companions journey. I thought this was an intriguing introduction to her upcoming book.
To introduce my new blog series, I’ve created an infographic. Thought it was time to do something different to present information. The infographic outlines Book 2 in the Servant of the Gods series and of the various places the reluctant hero Evan and his companions journey.
I quite like infographics, and the easy way information is presented. Though I must admit there’s nothing easy about designing and creating an infographic, unless you use a template.

There were a number of distinctive symbols the Minoans cultivated that had significant importance in their rituals and way of life. These distinguishing elements were not unique to the Minoans, which distinguished historians have identified were more cross-cultural, much like the representation of the Mother or Earth Goddess. The origins and similar features are evident (see article by J. Alexander MacGillivray) yet the purpose of the Minoan symbols evolved according to their needs and religious tenets. The main icons were the labrys, the bull horns, bees, and snakes.
