“Mona Lisa of Galilee”, from the 3rd century city of Sepphoris, in what was then Roman Palestine. She is part of a large mosaic - whose main subject is Dionysus - which decorates the triclinium floor in a grand villa. Roman mosaic artists were certainly masters of the craft. The color and detail is incredible.
