Minoan Bathtub

A Minoan bathtub decorated on the inside with a fish, and a wavy line (water?) running toward the drain, which would have been plugged while in use.


Akrotiri Table



Render this exquisitely carved side table in polished oak or mahogany, and it would fit right into a Victorian drawing room.

It is a plaster cast of a Minoan table that once stood in a house in Akrotiri some 3,600 years ago.  The late Spyridon Marinatos and his team of excavators pumped plaster of Paris into a void of hardened ash; once it set, the ghost of an elaborate table emerged from the ash.  Rattan beds, chairs, and wooden beams have also been cast.
