What's the story behind?
According to Greek mythology, Zeuss disguised as a bull carried princess Europa over the sea to the new continent which still bears her name today. Modern Europa is moving on, facing the future with the drive and spirit of GNU.

The Latin motto on some of the images reads:
"Omnis enim res, quae dando non deficit, dum habetur et non datur, nondum habetur, quomodo habenda est."
Quoted from Aurelius Augustinus (4th century)

In English this means: "For if a thing is not diminished by being shared with others, it is not rightly owned if it is only owned and not shared."
