Mycenae

Serena Malyon mycenae palace pylos clothing

For this project I did a fair amount of research into the late Bronze Age civilization Mycenae. I find the culture fascinating, and the art and architecture amazing. I tried to depict everyday life in a Mycenaean palace. There aren’t many artifacts left over from this period, but I was able to get a lot of information from frescoes and friezes. This meant that I had to heavily interpret a lot of the information. It was really fun to research and paint, I hope to do more educational illustrations in the future.
