This is a reblog of a post entitled, “Minoan Art and their Magnificence,” which is in the continuing series on the Ancient Minoan civilization. “Eternal Atlantis,” by Luciana Cavallero is one of my favorite sites on Ancient History.
One of the most notable features of Minoan civilisation was and is their artwork. The skills of the Minoan artisans were extraordinary. From the finest jewellery fashioned to the large wall friezes painted that allows us a glimpse of their life and culture. If it wasn’t for the artefacts archaeologists uncover, we’d know very little about the ancient civilisations and it is the sculptures, pottery, figurines, paintings and monolithic tributes that enables us to peek back in time.
