Photographer's Note

The Throne Room at the Palace of Knossos in Crete was a chamber built for sacred ceremonials during the 15th century BCE and was part of a larger complex that also included an anteroom and an inner chamber. The throne, made of alabaster and standing in the place where it was found, is considered the oldest in Europe. The walls of the Throne Room were decorated with frescoes of griffins, mythical beasts regarded as sacred by the Minoans.
