Artist's Description

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

The focus of this closeup view of the Miniature Frieze “Flotilla” Fresco is the island of Thera on the left side of the composition. This is a contemporary view of the ringed island before the great Bronze Age eruption of the Santorini marine volvano. It clearly shows an inner island ringed by water in the middle of the caldera with a large palace complex dominating the scene.
