Note the nude actress in an early American motion picture, before the Hollywood Motion Picture Production Code of film censorship. Nudity has almost universally not been permitted on stage, but sheer or simulated nudity may have been. Devices used include use of skin-tight flesh-colored bodystockings to simulate nudity or vital parts to be covered by long hair, for roles such as Lady Godiva. She is nevertheless seen with her top covered in surviving stills of these sessions. At least one later topless photograph of the young Bernhardt made in survives. These nude sessions were not meant for outright public viewing but for the encouraging of theatrical employers or personal guests.
Nudity in film
Knossos - Wikipedia
A labrys from Messara Plain. In Greek mythology, King Minos dwelt in a palace at Knossos. He had Daedalus construct a labyrinth , a very large maze by some connected with the double-bladed axe, or labrys in which to retain his son, the Minotaur. Daedalus also built a dancing floor for Queen Ariadne. As far as is currently known, it was William Stillman, the American consul who published Kalokairinos' discoveries, who, seeing the sign of the double axe on the massive walls partly uncovered by Kalokairinos, first associated the complex with the labyrinth of legend, calling the ruins "labyrinthine". The myth of the Minotaur tells that Theseus, a prince from Athens, whose father is an ancient Greek king named Aegeus , reason for the name of the Greek sea the Aegean Sea , sailed to Crete, where he was forced to fight a terrible creature called the Minotaur.
