SIDE A: The painting on this side is based on the famous Akrotiri Boxer Fresco. The Akrotiri Boxer Fresco is a Cycladic fresco depicting two young boys wearing boxing gloves and belts and dates back to the Bronze Age, 1700 BCE. In the Akrotiri Boxer Fresco, the youths’ red skin suggests their gender while their partially shaved heads indicate that they are still children.
SIDE B: The painting on this side is based on the famous “Fisherman” fresco which is now exhibited in the Museum of Prehistoric Thera. This painting shows a nude male fisherman holding his abundant catch in his hands. The sea was a critical part of the Theran’s society.
