Caption: A painting of Venus at the House of Venus in the Shell - Casa Della Venere in Conchiglia - in the ruins of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, Italy. Mars, the God of War, appears on the left. When the Vesuvius volcano erupted in AD 79, Pompeii was buried in ash and other volcanic products known as a pyroclastic flow, which preserved much of what is visible today.
