Intaglio or seal earrings based on the famous 'Prince of Lilies' fresco. The slender young figure is wearing a Minoan loincloth and a splendid crown of lilies and peacock feathers. With his left hand, he was probably holding a sacred animal, possibly a sphinx or a griffin.
The original fresco, found in the palace at Knossos in Crete, is now in the Museum at Heraklion and dates to ca 1500BC.
