The villa of P. Fannius Synistor in Boscoreale was built and decorated shortly after mid-first century BC. The quality of its frescoes seems to have preserved them from changes in fashion, before the villa was entombed in the Vesuvius eruption. It was uncovered around 1900 and produced upon excavation many frescoes and paintings which be seen in several museums across the world. The frescoes above are exhibited in Amiens.

On Tuesdays, just post any photo you like (it must be one of your own) that contains the color RED and then link to this blog.
