A painting of a semi-naked woman dancing with a veil on a bright red wall 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.
