Allegory of March: Triumph of Minerva, fresco, Francesco del Cossa. Palazzo Schifanoia, Ferrara, Italy, ~1436

In the second face ascendeth a form of a woman, outwardly cloathed with a red garment, and under it a white, spreading abroad over her feet, and this image causeth nobleness, height of a Kingdom, and greatness of dominion
-Henry Cornelius Agrippa

ancientart:

One of the most celebrated Minoan frescos, the Prince of Lillies, from Crete, dated to circa 1550 BC.
Like most surviving Minoan frescos, the Prince of Lillies, is fragmentary. The reconstruction of it has been much-debated since it was discovered in 1901. The archaeologist who found the fresco, Sir Arthur Evans, described it as a “Priest-King” figure, though some also suggest that it resembles a woman because of the head-dress.
For those interested, Maria C. Shaw wrote an interesting paper on the topic, The “Priest-King” Fresco from Knossos: Man, Woman, Priest, King, or Someone Else?
Courtesy & currently located at the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, Greece. Photo taken by Dimitris Agelakis.
