Detail from the Fresco of the Lilies in room 2 at Akrotiri, a Bronze Age settlement on the Aegean island of Thera. Swallows fly amid stalks of red lilies. The slight bend of the stalks implies a gentle breeze. It is believed that the artist was attempting to express the beginning of spring. Because a millstone and sickle were discovered in room 2, the room is thought to have been a shrine where rites were practiced in relation to a harvest festival and/or the processing of grain.
