The Villa of the Papyri is located in the ancient city of Herculaneum near Naples, Italy. It is situated on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius and overlooks the Bay of Naples.
This building contains frescoes depicting mythological scenes and portraits of emperors. These frescoes are linked to the activities of a group dedicated to the worship of the emperor Augustus.
This house features frescoes depicting Neptune, the god of the sea, and his wife Amphitrite. The frescoes in this house provide insights into Roman mythology and the visual representation of deities
Fascinating and interesting mosaics and floor patterns can be found dotted around in various establishments in Herculaneum Ruins.
Mosaics are intricate artworks created by assembling small, colorful pieces of marble, glass, and stone called tesserae to form patterns, images, and scenes.
Mosaics offer insights into Roman aesthetics, lifestyle, and artistic craftsmanship, serving as visual documents of the past.
Frescoes are paintings created by applying pigments onto wet plaster surfaces. As the plaster dries, the pigments become a part of the wall itself.
The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD buried Herculaneum in volcanic ash, creating an environment that preserved mosaics and frescoes over centuries.
