Caption: A detail of 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. 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.
