A detail from a fresco in room 3b at Xeste 3 in Akrotiri, dating to ca 1550BC. From the current excavations, it would appear that the fresco represented a number of women and aquatic birds.
Made for us in Greece, our collection of ceramic wall-tiles are painted by hand, so there may be a slight variation in colour from piece to piece. In order to make them look as close to the original as possible, many of the tiles have a 'craquelure' effect, to replicate the fine pattern of "cracking" formed on the surface of paintings, in particular due to the ageing of paints and pigments.
Should you wish to put these tiles in a bathroom or garden, we recommend that you apply a coat of transparent PVA sealant to protect them from rain and frost. They are supplied ready to hang, with a sturdy, embedded metal strip or, if preferred, they can be incorporated as features within a tiled wall.
