Dolphin Frieze, located at the Palace of Knossos.
Dated to between 1800- 1400 BC, this beautiful dolphin frieze is located above two doorways at the Palace in Crete. This is an example of early Minoan painting, through representing the natural world with no humans present. It is located in the Bath Hall, so its aquatic depiction is very apt.
