Dolphin Frieze, located at the Palace of Knossos.
Dated to between 1800- 1400 BC, this beautiful dolphin frieze is located above two doorways at the Palace in Crete. This is an example of early Minoan painting, through representing the natural world with no humans present. It is located in the Bath Hall, so its aquatic depiction is very apt.

National Archaeological Museum / Archaeological Site of Tiryns:

Murals from both the later and earlier palace of Tiryns. Female figures in procession bringing offerings to a deity, women on charriots observing a hunt, while the hounds have already overpowered the boars and an attendant on foot.
The presence of women in religious processions as well as hunts is a sign of their elevated status in the Mycenaean world.
