I was inspired by the drawing of a 7th century clay plate from the ancient town of Arkades or Arkadia in Crete, in the book “The Goddess and the Warrior” by archaeologist Nanno Marinatos

the original Arkades drawing

I created a drawing from it with different types of borders.

I used the traditional colors for people featured on Aegean vases : White skin for women, Dark skin for men.

As usual, I laid Arkades upside down in reverse method.

On top of it swims “Big Fish”, inspired by a roman mosaic of Oceanos displayed at the Archaeological museum of St Romain en Gal, and above it the fish tail of “Catacomb Venus” in its early stages of realization.
