I wanted to make this painting as an expression of admiration for the ancient Minoan civilization and their artwork. My goal was to focus on an artifact inspired by them so that the viewer could easily pay attention to its details. Secondarily, elements of Minoan architecture and symbolism are used to set the scene. The columns reference the great palace of Knossos found in Crete. The snake represents their Snake Goddess which has been interpreted by many as the protector of the house. The purpose was to paint the feeling of mystery and wonder of this great bronze age civilization and its colorful artwork.

Amazing paintings!

I love these paintings so much! I live in Greece and I can say that there are so truly Greek! Looking at these paintings I can feel salty breeze of Mediterranean sea, the colors give me feel of joy and happiness. Impressionistic manner of paintings depicts a beautiful atmosphere of Mediterranean scenes. Zachary is a great master!

Thank you so much for your incredibly kind message, Ksenia! I love your work as well. Your paintings are authentic and express the light of Greece masterfully.
