The wall paintings from the Cycladic island of Thera have astonished and delighted the archaeological world with the richness of their content and the remarkable state of their preservation. This book sets out to analyse the iconographic details of the miniature paintings, placing each within the broader context of the Aegean world. The book is illustrated by numerous drawings and photographs - the majority of the latter being the author's own close-up studies of details of the paintings. There is also a pull-out in full colour of the freezes so that they may be properly appreciated.
