The image shows the replicated Ladies in Blue fresco on display at the Knossos Palace located on the island of Crete, Greece.

Beautiful and colorful frescoes decorated the walls of the Minoan palaces and houses. They followed a certain color code, perhaps borrowed from Egyptians. Some of the codes are: red for men, white for women, yellow for gold.
