my classmate’s post

Ancient Egyptian frescoes ofter featured important religious or military events and were painted in a very rigid and formal style. They were meant to serve as a visual historical record. Minoan frescoes seemed much more aesthetically pleasing, featuring more vibrant colors and irregular formating. They showcased Minoan life, women, men, notably bull jumping, and seemed to be more for decorative purposes.
