The painting on the front side is based on the «ladies in blue » fresco, from the great palace at Knossos in Crete. The three white-skinned female figures with narrow waists and beautifully coiled hairstyles in this fresco are wearing form-fitting dresses with bare breasts. They are elaborately adorned with delicate necklaces, bracelets, and hair ornaments in a display of the great wealth of the Minoan court. The original reconstructed fresco is on display at the Heraklion Archaeological Museum in Crete.
The painting on the back side is based on a fresco found in Akrotiri of Santorini, which is exhibited in the national archeological museum of Athens.
