Ship of Thera The earliest representation of Early Bronze Age vessel date from the 3rd millennium B.C. and their provenance are the Cyclades islands and Crete. Several long ships with a large number of oars are represented, incised, on the so-called “frying pans”. These are earthenware, rounded, with a shallow rims and their use is still a matter of controversy among archaeologists. They are dated from 2.800 to 2.300 B.C.

The Fisherman fresco is from the 16th century BCE. It was found in a house in Akrotire, on the island of Thera, which was destroyed by a volcano. The fish appear to be mackerel or small tuna. The Minoans' all-important relationship with the sea is demonstrated in much of their art, including this fresco

Saffron gatherer in fresco from Akrotiri, Thera.    As you can clearly see here, Minoan women wore belts to hold up their culotte-like pants and their skirts. Also, they were the first civilization to wear corset-like metal belts underneath if their clothes to emphasize the waist on both women and men.  This is the link for the original picture. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wall_Paintings_of_Thera
