Minoan Dolphins Fresco

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Fresco relief from the Minoan Crete. It makes up a beautiful present as it combines the dolphins' movement and the light blue colour.

According to many legends and myths, the Ancient Greeks had a very close relationship with dolphins. The most famous dolphins decorate the fresco of Thera (1500 BC) and the fresco of Crete (Knossos, 2000BC). Homer through his works, explained why Odysseus wore amulets with a dolphin, and why his shield had that animal as its central motif. As stated in the legend, when Telemachus (Odysseus' son) was in danger of drowning as a child, he was saved by dolphins. Apollo, Demeter, Aphrodite and Dionysus are some of the twelve gods of mount Olympus, which were associated with dolphins. At the same time, myths from well-travelled sailors, people who were rescued by dolphins in the unknown seas and became friends with them, were documented in the wonderful texts of Homer, Plutarch, Herodotus and other historians and poets of the Ancient times.
