Drawing By Keel

The long-horned wild goat (above), indigenous to the Greek island of Crete, was a stock subject in Minoan art of the second millennium B.C.; local artists adapted the cow and calf motif to include their familiar goat. This drawing is of a faience relief of a she-goat poised on rocky terrain with her suckling kid found in a shrine at Knossos in Crete.
