Another of the beautiful frescoes from the Roman Villa Livia. The species showcased were: the strawberry tree, bay laurel (of course), oleander, holm oak, English oak, Cornelian cherry, myrtle, date palm, Italian cypress, quince, stone pine, and pomegranate.
Ancient Roman fresco from the villa of P. Fannio Sinistore in Boscoreale, 43-30 BCE. This extraordinarily well preserved image makes remarkable use of perspective and colour. It is unknown what the function of the orb on the table is, perhaps it is a glass bowl with a butterfly pattern on it. Courtesy currently located in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
