(for example, special vessels) and a design of rooms with kitchen and the window leaving to the room where the ritual feast was arranged. In such complexes of a wall were decorated with the picturesque, perfectly remained frescos with images of ceremonies.
However their world is conditional. The wall with the image is divided into the zones limited from above and from below to wide, absolutely direct color strips - red-yellow, blue-blue, white. The structure of a list is logical and thought accurately over. The fresco looks not a picturesque splinter of nature, and carefully directed scenic representation. It is important that not the colourful weight, not a color spot, not Wednesday dominate in such composition, and a silhouette - expressive, with the worked drawing in it and then painted. Three horizontal levels of a list are subordinated to idea of three worlds - underground, terrestrial and heavenly.
In this fresco similarity of characters with graceful Minoan" the Parisian" - the same emphasized elegance, grace of gestures and poses attracts attention. However it is necessary to notice also differences. At fereysky "ladies" of the movement are not prompt, and are sluggish and smooth. They give a hand or slowly stride, making actions in the presence of the viewer, in his real time. The represented almost in natural growth, graceful ladies as if participate in the events occurring indoors.
Mikentsa lived side by side with minoyets to the 12th eyelid B.C. Mycenaean governors widely used services of gifted Minoan masters so, eventually Mycenaean and Minoan arts formed a certain difficult alloy.
Achaeans (or as their began to call according to the name of the capital - Mycenae, mikenets) came to Greece from Northern Europe. These people were an Indo-European origin. Mikentsa were immediate ancestors of future Greeks (Greco. About the middle of 2 millennia B.C. their power extended on all Aegean world, they got on many islands, took also Knossos - the capital of the power of Minos.
Achievements of the Aegean masters in 1 millennium BC. Became heritage of Greeks. It is possible to tell with confidence that without it it would not be created classical monuments of Ancient Greek art which became famous for the whole world.
in" a transition state" - in a pier at the door connecting both rooms. Closely cropped (only the ringlet snake turned" into the past is left "), the priestess solemnly strode in a room corner where the altar was located on one of eight windows. To this altar, on-kritski decorated with the dolphins diving among coral reeves, youth priests bore a linking of fishes.
Kritskaya's creators (or as she is called differently, Minoan) civilizations were the people of an origin unspecified so far. Their culture arose approximately at the beginning of 2 millennia B.C. Its main centers were the island of Crete with its cities prospering then and islands of the Aegean Sea. Historians call this civilization Minoan, by name the mythical kritsky tsar Minos, and her founders - minoyets.
Special charm the image of "Parisian" (so she was called by historians) - the graceful girl represented in one of rooms of the second floor of the Knossos palace breathes. There the ritual feast which participants sat opposite to each other with cups in hands was presented. Only the fragment of the head and big ritual knot on clothes behind remained. Fragility, grace, a thin delicacy are combined in image with asymmetry, any exaggerations," spontaneity" of a brush. Handwriting fluent, live, instant. The ugly face with a nose, long, wrong in a form, and full red lips shines brightly life. The shock of black curly hair gives to "Parisian" elegance, and thin as if water color painting with the translucent background allocates it with lightness and grace.
The fresco with a tavrokatapsiya shows, and live Minoan art was how dynamic. The stiffened poses, the stopped views, self-depth - everything were alien to it that was so expensive to Egyptians and inhabitants of ancient Dvurechya (Mesopotamia). The moment, truly grabbed action, awe of the present was important for Cretans.
