That ochre handprint
Is historic now but once
A man spat paint there.

Mycenaean Fresco

Mycenean Fresco

This new sketch is based on a fresco from Mycenae. They ruled the Aegean Sea from 1400 BC until 1100 BC. Their is a deceptive simplicity to ancient art that I find very appealing.

Who was this woman? Why is she smiling?
