The fresco of a ship parade (niopompi) is one of the greatest monuments of European art. It was found at Akrotiri on Santorini. The fresco illustrated a convoy of 14 different sized rowing boats, between two ports. It is dated to 1650 BC, in the Bronze Age. It is a painting of Minoan art and it was discovered by Professor Marinatos in 1972, in Santorini.
The fresco is located in Akrotiri and it shows a fleet of ships leaving one city and arriving at another. The painting has a narrative character and probably relates to a historical event, a mythological story, in a invasion or a festivity.
