Artist's Description

Late Bronze Age (LBA)
Late Minoan I (LM I) Period
Late Cycladic I (LC I) Period
Painted sometime before ~1613 BC
Akrotiri, Santorini (Thera), Greece

This is a precision original painting of the West Wall Swallows Scene from the Spring Fresco of Akrotiri. The entire fresco covers three walls of Room 2, a ground floor room, in the Delta Complex of the archaeological site of Akrotiri on the southern coast of the island of Santorini (Thera) in Greece. Except for the cave art of the Paleolithic to the best of my knowledge this fresco is the first and most ancient representation of landscape or nature art known to us. Uniquely it’s one continuous work of art that spans the south, west, and north walls of Room 2 in a surround effect for the observer. It’s now housed in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, Greece.
