The Minoans and the Mycenaeans seem to be completely different cultures and individuals. The Minoans did not seem to worry about conflict as much as the Mycenaeans did. This can even be seen in some of the artwork. Because of the Mycenaeans having so much conflict with themselves and others I believe this is something that highly influenced the art the created. The Minoan people created beautiful work. They also created such nice work because of their cultural ways. The Minoan culture seemed to have the mindset to focus more on luxurious and beautiful items like the kamares jugs and artworks depicting festivities. While the Mycenaean culture focused on strength and the advantages of war such as the lion gate or the warrior krater. I believe the day to day lives these cultures had were shown in the pieces of the artwork that were created.
