This beautiful ancient minoan fresco depicts two antelopes, sketched with strong, dark lines. Their simple figures are slender and agile, and their movements reserved yet expressive.
Akrotiri, Thera, 16th cent. BC
Though the antelope are rendered in outline only, the artist revealed the strength of his talent, giving them expression and depicting them in an amorous converse, as is shown by the movements of the heads, of the lips and the tails.
