The remains of the most famous of the Knossos frescoes - the bull-leaping fresco. We were told that the figure in the centre, with the red body is a man - this colour through working outdoors, while the two white figures are women. The official guide says nothing to this effect, but suggests that the figure shows the three stages of the leap. The Wikipedia article, however, does support the guide's account. There's a colourful reproduction on Getty Images.
