Caption: Roman frescoes, Herculaneum. These wall paintings were found on the interior wall of the House of the Deer, a Roman villa in the ancient Italian town. The once luxurious residence has been excavated and restored. It takes its name from two marble statues found in the garden of deer being attacked by dogs. Herculaneum was destroyed in the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 AD. However, the thick layer of volcanic ash that buried the town preserved buildings, bodies and other artefacts.
