Feather prince

The feather prince from the palace at Knossos; part of the Procession Fresco. It depicts a regal figure, probably, the Priest King, wearing a crown of lilies and peacock plumes. With his outstretched left hand he may have been leading sphinx or a griffin. About 1550 B.C.  Herakleion Archaeological Museum

knossos throne room

Knossos throne room. Detail of the fresco with the double epsilon 2E on the north side of the Throne room at Knossos.

bull leaping scene

The bull-leaping fresco, which comes from the East Wing of the palace at Knossos, shows the three successive stages of the sport and thus gives us a full and clear picture of how it was performed. As the bull charges, the acrobat first grasps its horns, then somersaults on to its back and finally jumps off. Both men and women took part in this dangerous  sport. 15th cent. B.C. Herakleion Archaeological Museum.

Knossos parissien

The Minoan Lady known as "La Parisienne", part of the Camp Stool Fresco, which was probably painted on the wall of the Sanctuary Hall on the Piano Nobile. The sacral knot worn at the back of the neck seems to indicate that she is a priestess or even a goddess. Neopalatial period 1400 B.C. Herakleion Archaeological Museum.
