Title: A Minoan fresco from Katsamba
Authors: Shaw, Maria C.
Keywords: Minoan Fresco
Issue Date: 1978
Publisher: Archaeological Institute of America (Boston)
Citation: "A Minoan Fresco from Katsamba," American Journal of Archaeology 82 (1978), pp. 27-34.
Abstract: A small Minoan fresco fragment, found some years ago in a MMIII-LMI house at Katsamba, the harbor town of Knossos, implies, by the design preserved on it, that large scale figurative representations occurred in mural decorations of that site. More specifically, the design preserved, partially rendered in miniature style, seems to depict embroidered and/or textile patterns and thus is possibly a decoration upon the dress of a female figure of the general type and scale of the "Ladies in Blue" fresco from the palace of Knossos and of analogous compositions from elsewhere in Crete or the Cyclades.
