Knossos - Dolphin fresco - Heraklion museum

 

From this reconstruction in the museum, you can see how little of the orginal actually remained.  It obviously took quite a feat of imagination to reconstruct the fresco shown yesterday.

Recreating all of this is a labour of love really Tom
Tom Wilson: Oh, absolutely!

They did very well then - I suppose they had the "bits" from the other dolphins to guide them, too
Tom Wilson: Yes, I imagine there were clues around the place.
It would be great if they found a photograph of the original to see how accurate the reconstruction is ......grin
Tom Wilson: Wouldn't that have been a great thing smile However, they did have paintings of parts of the Palace and also clay models of the buildings, which told then the shape of the pillars, etc.

I see what you mean Tom, but it is a fine composition.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed.
As you mentioned previously, it was controversial. One can see why.
Tom Wilson: Yes, quite a bit of guesswork going on!
