Photograph - Archeological Photo
Image of the celebrated Minoan fresco named "Parisiene" by the archaeologists. More than 3500 years ago used to decorate the walls of the Palace at Knossos. It was detached from the wall section of the Libation Offerings, and now is on display at Herakleion Museum. She is a Priestess of the Goddess. The title of Parisienne was given because of her stylish hair and make-up. Women in Crete were very fashionable, wore brightly colored and embroidered clothes that were open to the navel leaving their breasts exposed, and had short sleeves and layered flounced skirts. Women also wore a strapless fitted bodice, the first fitted garment known in history.
