In all honesty, knowing that these two archaeologists, Sir Arthur Evans and Heinrich Schliemann, had their own agenda make me look at this art with a more critical and doubtful eye. Without knowing that these men had their own ideas, as to the culture of the Minoan and Mycenaean, I could potentially look at their interpretations more factually. Knowing that certain pieces were altered to fit their ideas, makes me think more deeply as to what those pieces were intended to represent. Snake Goddess is a particularly interesting one in my eyes because of the recreation of the head, neck, arm, placement of an additional snake, cat posted on the hat, it seems a bit overboard on assumption for my liking.
