The famous Parisienne fresco
Fragment of a fresco with a female figure, possibly a young priestess, with the sacral knot at her back. The name was given by Sir Arthur Evans because of the concern for appearence indicated by her heavily made-up face. It was found at the west wing upper halls of the Palace at Knossos. Final Palace Period 1400 - 1350 BC. (Heraklion Museum)
