Minoan Frescoes were created by mixing pigments with water and applying them onto plaster where the absorbed colors dried into the surface.
These blue moneys appear on a wall in Akrotiri, a Minoan city on the island of Santorini. The monkey was indigenous to Egypt and may have been brought to the island as gifts and pets. The artist creates a highly naturalistic portrait of the animal – blue with a white belly and groin – very different from the highly stylized Egyptian art of the period.
