Artwork Description
Pieces of this fresco were found during Evan's excavation in the west wing of the Palace of Knossos and were later restored by Emile Gillieron. 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. The original reconstructed fresco is on display at the Heraklion Archaeological Museum in Crete.
