The reproductions were made by Petros Nomikos, who followed a sophisticated and advanced technique and managed to create exceptionally realistic and faithful reproductions of all the wall paintings that were discovered.

The wall paintings of Akrotiri are of utmost artistic and historic importance. Many of the originals are still not accessible to the public. Thus, the Nomikos exhibition offers the visitors a unique opportunity to view and admire all of them.

The exhibition ends with a collection of photos that present the daily routine of the people that worked at the Akrotiri excavations.
