Abstract

"Some of the finest interpretations ot nature ever to be expressed by an were painted by the Minoan fresco artists of Crete. Discovered only since the turn of the 20th century, the Kinoan Bronze Age civilization was amazingly progressive and notably modern. Apparently, the Minoans gained their high standard of living mainly through economic prosperity and secarity provided by a great navy. Arts, architecture and craft relice uncovered have been numerous, well-preserved and invaluable sources of historical knowledge"
