The strength of this beautiful flower patter explains the longevity of the columns within the ancient city of Pompeii. I find it amazing that they not only withstood the ravages of time, but the lava and ash that covered the city, following the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D.

    Very interesting pattern, I imagine it took millions of these petals to make up even a fraction of the columns......interesting to say the least...I thought many of the columns were solid carvings...perhaps depends upon the use of columns..regardless...love this...
