Knossos - Prince with the lilies.jpg

 

A reconstructed fresco - the original is in the Museum of Archaeology in Heraklion.  It is covered by glass - hence the reflection of the wall opposite.

No doubt everything is symbolic in the picture Tom

J'aime beaucoup ce dessin.
Tom Wilson: Oui, c'est tres joli.
Wouldn't you love to be able to time travel and see this place in its prime?
Tom Wilson: Indeed - it would be interesting to step into that video I showed yesterday!

a famous fresco often pictured in old schoolbooks. I am very impressed by this ancient artworks.
Tom Wilson: Given how little remains of the actual fresco it obviously took quite a lot of imagination to reconstruct! The fragments are in the museum in Heraklion.
