wall in Pompeii villa

fish mosaic from Pompeii

fish mosaic from Pompeii
I have just returned from Italy and a visit to Pompeii and Herculaneum.   The walls of the buildings are made up of blocks set at an angle which reminded me of fish scales. The mosaics of fish are so amazingly detailed and show many kinds of fish.
