    Europa and the white bull: Zeus saw Europa gathering flowers by the Mediterranean Sea and fell in love with her. Zeus appeared on the sea shore as a great white bull, gently walked over to Europa and knelt at her feet. Europa spread flowers on Zeus’ neck and climbed on his back. As soon as Europa was on his back, Zeus (still in the form of a great white bull) rushed into Mediterranean Sea, abducting Europa, and carried her to the island of Crete. Once on the shore of Crete, Zeus returned to man-like form and had sex with Europa under a cypress tree. Europa became the first queen of Crete and had three sons by Zeus, one of which was Minos. In remembrance of his love of Europa, Zeus placed the shape of the great white bull in the sky as the constellation Taurus.
