Lives of leisure defiantly fit the Minoan Culture whereas the live of War fits the Mycenaean culture. Minoan art could be considered more peaceful, the focus was on nature, daily activities, animals and nature. The Mycenaean culture was all about war and dominance and their art reflects that. I feel that most times art is a product of our environment, other than fantasy art people most often make art that depicts their surroundings. I feel this premise is supported by the different works of art such as the Lions Gate from the Mycenaean’s and the Harvester Rhyton.
