Pompeii Fresco

I finally made it to the Pompeii exhibition (Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum) at the British Museum.

There was so much to see about the daily lives of people who lived in these two cities including wall paintings and furniture.  There were also a couple of victim casts 🙁

I bought a little book published by the British Museum for the exhibition, Art in Pompeii and Herculaneum, which features one of my favourite pieces – a fresco of Flora, goddess of flowers and Spring – which I made a copy of.
