The Saffron Goddess (1600 B.C.) is a detail from a Minoan fresco depicting a saffron harvest. She sits supervising the plucking of flowers and the gleaning of stigmas for use in the manufacture of what is possibly a therapeutic drug. A mythological griffin, considered to be a combination of the body of a lion as king of the beasts and the head of an eagle, stands guard.

The Saffron Gatherer: From our Akrotiri Collection which features frescos from the ancient Minoan City of Akrotiri on the island Santorini. The woman with a shaved blue head is depicted in a field of crocuses. She is gathering the stamens with both hands. The Crocus grows even today on the Aegean islands and mainland Greece. Saffron, which is derived from the stamen of the crocus, has been used as a dye, a medicine, a spice and a perfume for centuries.
