      Mosaic portrait of a woman, Pompeii, Museo di Capodimonte. She doesn't look particularly happy--maybe she got bored sitting there for weeks as someone put tiny leetle pieces of mosaic together?

      Incredibly detailed #Roman #portrait #mosaic in the Museo di Capodimonte from the city of #Pompeii. Found in the cubiculum of a house, this unique floor mosaic portrays a young woman of a rich family - probably the domina of the house, as indicated by the jewelry and the dress.
