One of the most important Minoan frescoes found in Knossos is that of "Prince with Lilies", which is very fragmentary and has been completed for the most part.

The composition is colorful, vibrant. In low relief, there is an imposing male figure walking to the left on an indefinite red background. He wears the typical Minoan waistband with a wide belt, necklace and a rich headgear decorated with lilies and peacock feathers. The stance of his hands indicates that he may have carried an animal or a mythical monster, griffon or sphinx with his left hand. The young man was called a "Prince" by the researchers because he was believed to attribute to the priest-king who lived in the palace of Knossos.

Attention: There may be a difference of a few centimeters in the indicated dimensions and in the color of the photos. 

The difference MAY BE there but in any case I must have informed you in advance.
