Les Parisiennes fresco Knossos original

Notice the fresh, white-washed, sun-bleached translucence of the original fresco, even after 3,500 years!

SILVER Replica of Les Parisiennes Fresco Knossos on papyrus

Notice the warm earthen colours of the papyrus version. You can also clearly see the texture of the papyrus on my own picture above. Sadly, I dropped it once and tore it and when I put it back together, it came out a bit crooked. But it is still lovely, and that is all the matters. I though to myself, what better way to begin the month of February, when Valentine’s is just 14 days away, right in the middle of the month, and so here you have them.

Enjoy them as much as I do.
