Two examples of the distinctive Kamares Style of pottery decoration used by the Minoans based on Crete in the Middle Bronze Age (2000-1700 BCE). The designs were rendered with bold strokes of red and white on a black background and the style is named after the place on Crete where most examples have been excavated.
