Spring fresco,Ceramic slab copy,from Akrotiri, Thera
Decorate your home with an Ancient Greek ceramic Slab,copy fromThe famous Minoan Spring Fresco, Akrotiri, Thera (Santorini), 16th century BCThe site of Akrotiri, on the spectacular island of Santorini, is one of the jewels of the Minoan civilization. The Theran eruption in the mid-second millennium BC buried the city, preserving several frescoes of exceptional importance in an excellent state of conservation. These include the so-called "fresco of the antelopes”, the "fresco of the boxers, " the impressive "Marine festival fresco”, and the one that is arguably the most beautiful of all of them, the “Spring Fresco".The “Spring Fresco” occupied three walls from room Delta 2 on the Akrotiri Site, being the only “triptych” found on the whole settlement. It is an marvelous work of art, depicting a brightly colored rocky landscape dotted with blossoming lilies and flying swallows, painted with remarkable precision.The apparently simple composition contains some elements of great interest. As the Thera Foundation website explains, some romantic critics believed that the pair of swallows from the central wall are “kissing birds”, but ornithologists now suggest that they are two male birds fighting. The blossoming lilies that dominate the composition helps us to imagine the landscape of the island before the devastating Theran eruption.Although a contemporary observer could find this Minoan fresco “dull” or even “boring”, even those who do not appreciate ancient art should take in consideration the exceptional artistic milestone it represents: perhaps for the first time in the history of art, an artist decided to look around him and create art from the surrounding landscape The original reconstructed fresco is on display at the National Archaeological Museum, Athens Net weight: 0,5kgr(1,1lbr), Dimensions: 20cm* 17cm(7,8*6,63) HAND MADE AND HAND PAINTED IN GREECE / SAFE PACKAGE This product is accompanied by a certificated that are HAND MADE from the start to finish .From the moment being clay and gets up on the wheel, the banking in the furnace, the background creation,the strip the design, the decoration and the finish.We strive to capture and disseminate worldwide the style and culture of our ancestors .The Philosophy of the Company is to create customers that are fully satisfied with the qualityy of our work, but also with our professionalism and consistency,with the aim of buying again and again.We have been shipped small and large orders at all over the world for many years since 1986.
