A bit of ancient art

A Photo a Week Challenge: Ancient
Marsha’s Photographing Public Art Challenge#17

One of my favourite ancient sites is Pompeii. Among the ruins is pieces of art that have remained intact since the fateful eruption of Mt Vesuvius in AD 79. Take a bit of a scroll with me and have a poke around the houses and buildings of Pompeii.

One of the grand buildings

The courtyard of a wealthy citizens house

Birds figured in a number of designs on the walls

Repeating patterns on many of the walls decorating the houses

Some included figures

Some fresco’s were colourful
