The famous fresco of the "Prince of the Lilies" is one of the most famous archaeological findings of Ancient Crete. The fresco from Knossos was found in fragments and thoroughly restored. It shows the figure of a young man rendered in low relief. He walks towards the left and wears a loin-cloth with wide belt, a necklace and an elaborate head-dress decorated with lilies and peacock feathers.

The figure was named "prince", because it was thought to represent the Priest-King who lived in the palace of Knossos. The only parts, that are preserved are the torso, the arms, the legs and an elaborate head-dress.

The "Prince of the Lilies" fresco is kept at the Heraklion Archaeological Museum.
