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.

    Interesting how the wall seems to have splotches of blood encircling the figure in this Frescoe...Amazing series!

    that deep red--so tremendous and evocative here. A great blend of the figurative and abstract (I quite like the carved initials, at least in the context of the image). Beautiful find, Deborah!
