Absolutely stunning. The palace of Knossos is considered to have been vastly ahead of other civilizations in terms of architecture. The construction and incorporation of pillars in the support system, at this point in history, is simply fascinating.

Minoan female statuette with hands raised to breasts    From Knossos on Crete.     This piece is fantastic for the study of Minoan fashion. She wears a tall conical hat, hair loose about her shoulders. She wears a dress with sleeves, which leaves her breasts bare. Under her breasts is a wide belt and an apron falls over her multi-layered skirt.
