The wall-painting of "Spring" is the only one found in a basement room in the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri in Thera. The painting covered three walls. The painting's theme - the springtime revival of Theran nature, was probably associated with religious rituals to celebrate the arrival of spring.

The wall-painting presents probably the rocky landscape of Stroggyli (Santorini) before the Minoan eruption of Thera. Clusters of red lilies dominate the rocky volcanic landscape, while swallows swoop above, singly or in flirtatious pairs. It is attributed to the painter of the Crocus Gatherers painting in Akrotiri.

The wall-painting of "Spring" is displayed at the National Archaeological museum in Athens.
