ArtReproductions™ - Minoan Murals

rescoes are the most striking examples of Minoan art, easily captivating every soul with their refined elegance and their dazzling beauty. 
Combining discoveries in Knossos and Thira-Santorini we can imagine the impressive surroundings of the Minoan palaces. There are strong indications that many scenes that include people, if not all, were of ceremonial or symbolic significance; ceremonies, feasts, or activities are illustrated in their preparatory stages, while in some cases deities are depicted. 

But how can we see today wonderful murals that were made 3,600 years ago? By example of nature, the ancient craftsmen of the copper age developed the technique of painting on freshly laid mortar. Colors are mixed with the liquid mortar and when dried, they become a body with the wall, a method that ensures extra-long life. This technique is called fresco, as the painting is made on a fresh coating and has flourished in Classical Antiquity, the Hellenistic Period and the Roman and Byzantine times. Since the Renaissance, it dominates and becomes famous by the Latin name fresco.
