Joseph Campbell and The Power of Myth book cover design

I was really happy to be commissioned with designing a book cover for the first Polish edition of The Power of Myth by Jospeh Campbell. Campbell's ideas inspired creators of Star Wars, Matrix and even The Lion King.
The images of medieval creatures were obtained from an image library but I needed an ultimate hero, a mythical figure to balance the linear pattern of the bootom of the design. That is how Minotaure ended up on the top of the red rectangle.
