The mosaics and art of Pompeii

Most of the really good mosaic floors and reliefs had been removed to the safety of the National Museum of archeology in Naples. It was the main reason I visited the place.

The mosaics are housed in a series of interlocking rooms. The final room houses the "Erotic" art from Pompeii.

I shall post those pictures separately. But I must warn you, dear reader. Erotic isn't a fair name for them. Absolutely, bloody filthy is a more apt statement! Kinky lot them Romans!

Till next time.
