Hercules with pet Cerberus

in the floor of the 'Labours of Hercules house' in Volubilis, near Meknes, Morocco. mosaic is about two feet across,


taken in the middle of a torrential rain that cleared the ruins of other tourists, and washed all the dust off the mosaics so i could get a decent picture. not long after taking this picture, i shared shelter in an upturned bin with one of the site's guardians, who walk around with whistles to warn people not to knock stuff over or walk on the walls.
