Considering Pompeii not only suffered the ravages of time, but a violent earthquake in 62 AD and a volcanic eruption in 79AD, it’s truly amazing frescoes, such as this one, in that ancient city still exist.

In the The Story is on the Wall photo essay.

    I love your series and it is amazing how these angel frescoes survived the destruction so well... I especially love the angel child with the protective armour shield in front of him which to me is symbolic that they would stay intact throughout the devastation!

    I love this one. To me it looks like a woman and the angels are bringing her the belongings of a dead soldier. What do you think?
