Abstract

The conventions of Minoan artists are often alien to us, and call for close and systematic observation. Here the convention used for a type of sword will be studied, with reference to frescoes from Thera and a figure on the Chieftain’s Cup from Ayia Triada. Learning more about the conventions of the Minoans does not only help us understand more about their iconography, but ultimately opens a window into their minds.
