Not much has changed...
A bird sitting in a garden. That does not seem to be a very special topic for a painting. But what if this painting was nearly 2000 years old? Would it be special then? It sure would!
Frescos were very popular in ancient Roman times. You could find them virtually everywhere - from private homes, over public spaces, up to temples. They depicted everything. Scenes taken from the daily life of a Roman citizen, famous battle scenes, scenes from popular tales and so forth. And sometimes they could depict something as simple as a bird sitting in a garden.
Pictures like that make it possible to dive into the life of a normal Roman citizen, to gain some kind of understanding for how their routines looked like and what they might have thought or felt.
Unfortunately, not many frescos or portraits have survived into our age. Therefore, every little piece of authentic Roman art is a treasure on its own and has to be valued accordingly.
If you too are a friend of the fine arts and, additionally, a history enthusiast, then this is just the thing for you! It also makes for a great and unique present!
