The Papyrus Fresco.This fresco comes from the Room of the Ladies from the house of the same name.The papyrus flowers are shown in groups of three and cover three walls. Beneath the plants may be a river, a common association in both Minoan and Egyptian art. The discovery of ritual vessels within four sealed containers under the floor of the room suggests that it was used as a shrine. (Museum of Prehistoric Thera, Santorini).
