In Greek mythology, Europa was the mother of King Minos of Crete, a Phoenician princess of Argive origin, after whom the continent Europe took its name. According to the legend, Europa was the epitome of feminine beauty on Earth, and this is the reason we created this exclusive scarf: wear it and you will be overwhelmed by its mythical charms that will make you feel like the absolute number one. Once Zeus, the King of the Gods, laid his eyes on Europa, he was immediately captivated by her beauty. He fell madly in love with her and had a strong desire to make her his. In a blink of an eye, he took the form of a white bull and approached her. While Europa and her helpers were gathering flowers, she saw the bull, caressed his flanks, and eventually got onto his back. Zeus seized the opportunity and ran to the sea swimming until he reached the island of Crete with Europa on his back. He then revealed his true identity, and Europa became the first queen of Crete. It is said that when Europa died, Zeus transformed her into a star complex and he himself took again the shape of the white bull to merge within the complex of the Taurus Constellation, which is believed to have the form of Zeus.
