Artist's Description

“Original Reproduction”
Late Bronze Age (LBA)
Late Minoan (LM) Period
Knossos, Crete, Greece

Pieces of this fresco were found during Evan’s excavation in the west wing of the Palace of Knossos and was later restored by Emile Gilliéron. His original restoration is in the Heraklion Archaeological Museum in Heraklion, Crete. The three white-skinned female figures with narrow waists and beautifully coiled hairstyles in this fresco are wearing form-fitting dresses with bare breasts. They are elaborately adorned with delicate necklaces, bracelets, and hair ornaments in a display of the great wealth of the Minoan court.
