Knossos Scale Model

Rounding off the week, today I’m sharing another photo from the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion. This time it’s a close up of the wooden scale model of the (reconstructed) temple complex at Knossos. I’ve always had a thing for scale models, particularly the traditional kind: you know, when the bits are individually hand-made and don’t come out of a kit. This model lies at the beginning of the significant Minoan section of the Museum, rightfully with centre stage being taken by the collection of artifacts from Knossos. I visited Knossos later that week, and I have some images to share from there. Keep an eye out on this blog in the coming weeks.
