Ancient Cultures Vol. 1: The Beauty of Minoan Art

One of the things the ancient Minoan culture is famous for is their vibrant frescoes and pottery designs. As a quick history lesson, the Minoans lived on modern day Crete during the Bronze Age. This was about 2,000-1,500 BCE. Their love of their way of life was reflected in their art. They especially had a love of the sea and nature. You can see flowing, naturalistic designs that represent the timeless beauty of the natural world. Their art was notable because it was not a common type during that time. As a seafaring culture in the Aegean, the Minoans were constantly being exposed to different cultures, materials and knowledge. They used all of those in their artwork. For example, in some pieces, you could see differences in social and political status reflected in the art. Read on the various stages of development and more! Click source below. The Minoans were just one of many, amazing ancient cultures! Stay tuned for other blog posts featuring others!

Did you know treasure hunters can find pieces of history from ancient cultures? It’s true. Read about best practices before getting started.
