perfect Lady Moon
until one looks much closer
she has her flaws too

Dame lunaire parfaite
mais si l’on scrutine de près
elle a ses défauts

This building is remarkable for the typically Greek (or if you prefer, Minoan) simplicity of its architecture. What really struck me while I was visiting Knossos on the afternoon of May 2 2012 was that the circular rosettes on its frieze are perfectly circular, each one exactly identical to the next. It seems the Greeks inherited the mania for geometric simplicity fro their forbears, the Minoans.
