Mycenaean Fresco

Mycenean Fresco

This new sketch is based on a fresco from Mycenae. They ruled the Aegean Sea from 1400 BC until 1100 BC. Their is a deceptive simplicity to ancient art that I find very appealing.

Who was this woman? Why is she smiling?

  1. Idk who she was but there are paintings of “this” woman during 13th century BCE.
    Normally there isn’t an arch depicting a smile but just enough to see her lips.
    I’m not sure why she’s smiling, one picture she looks like royalty – maybe her status is why.
