MINOAN AND MYCENAEAN ART AND ARCHITECTURE
AS ALWAYS, THE IMAGES ARE STRICTLY FOR PERSONAL AND EDUCATIONAL USE, AND NO PERMISSION TO USE THEM FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES IS GRANTED
(The bold-faced items are the ones I will hold you responsible for on the test.)
I. MINOAN CRETE
a/b/c/d) The Palace at Knossos. The site linked below is from the Greek Ministry of Culture. The main site has an aerial photo of the palace. The thumbnails can be enlarged. Follow the hot link "The Palace of Knossos": it has a hotlink to "the throne room" and expandable thumbnails of "La Parisienne" and "The Bulldance Fresco."
e) The fisherman fresco from Thera--a typically Minoan sea motif!
II. MYCENAEAN GREECE
a) The Greek Ministry of Culture's official site for the fortress of Mycenae, with an expandable plan of the fortress, showing the scale, offers a very nice expandable thumbnail of the Lion Gate, with the cyclopean walls (remember--later Greeks, seeing the immense stone blocks, could not believe that the fortress had been built by merely human hands).
b) The so-called "Treasury of Atreus"--a beehive tomb, dating to ca. 1300-1200 B.C., at Mycenae. The images offered here are courtesy of AICT [Art Images for College Teaching] at . First, here is an image of the entry into the "Treasury":
