fresco tiles

hand-painted replica Minoan fresco paintings from ancient Crete

The dynamic, artistic and highly sophisticated Minoan civilisation flourished on Crete and on Thera/Santorini ca 2700-1500BC. Named after the mythological King Minos, the wealthy MInoans traded extensively across the Mediterranean area. Their vast palaces were adorned with colourful frescoes and pottery which reflected their love of the natural world.

The Minoans painted the most glorious frescoes on the walls of their palaces and their homes. Many of these have been excavated not only on Crete, but on the island of Thera/Santorini. Our reproductions are as faithful to the originals as possible - well, the originals in their excavated state anyway, as they were possibly much more brightly coloured when they were first created.
