Paestum & Museum Nov 28 2006

A chapel to a Greek God partially buried

"The Diver" The top of a tomb. The painting faced inside the tomb and is only one of five beautiful paintings that comprise the entire tomb and are preserved in this museum. The diver depicted here is passing from this realm into the afterlife.

A piece of a fresco depicting bulls

This is a decorative detail form the edge of a building. Unfortunately the head is missing.
