The Minoan civilization, a quiet coastal town of ancient Crete, at it's height in 1600 BC came to a grim and abrupt end; their towns leveled by a colossal eruption of the Greek Thera volcano, burying it's adjacent towns in feet of ash. The civilization, as with many like it, were sent into a dismal decline, never to rebound into the thriving community it once was. This piece, with it's swirling fierce reds and blacks, captures the moment of geothermal venting Crete saw so many years ago. The intense heat emanating from the fiery visage commands attention that draws the eye upward into the smoky explosion.

A custom, hand-built frame has been applied to the back of the piece and is ready to hang, either at home or an office. It has been sealed with high gloss art varnish to increase it's luster, giving it a sense of movement while protecting it from UV light.

Dimensions: 24" x 48" x 1"
