This one surprises me......still have the paint.....Congratulations from Portugal....Conquilha

Marilyn Whiteley on July 22, 2009

Thank you, Conquilha. Actually the paint is the result of "reconstruction" by Sir Arthur Evans early in the 20th century--but is very attractive! Greetings from Canada, Marilyn

I remember that picture. I went there while school crusie in 1968. It is very interest about before Jesus born. Which one Missionary Paul went to Crete but which he did there after Jesus died. Will you share me about this history story. I am making the scrapbook about this history while tour. Also, big vase. I try think what is for big vase? it is for oil or water or what. Can you tell me about this. thank you very much for your helping.

Excellent composition, L4, best wishes, Biplab.

Marilyn Whiteley on December 21, 2013

Very late thanks, Dimitris, Irishlady, and Christian, and also thank you, Biplab. Sir Arthur Evans's "reconstruction" in the early 20th century may not be accurate, but it is beautiful!

Best wishes, Marilyn
