Roman fresco detail with bird and fruit, Villa of Livia, Prima Porta

Detail from a wall from a room in Livia's villa at Prima Porta not far from Rome.

 

This small room was decorated on all four internal walls with extremely naturalistic garden scenes showing plants, flowers, shrubs, trees and birds - so well rendered that they can be identified very easily.

 

The room can now be seen in the museum at Palazzo Massimo in Rome.
