    About

    This art print is of a fascinating wall painting (or fresco) from Pompeii, found in a house called the Villa of the Mysteries. It is thought to show initiation rites, though the painting has been interpreted in many different and interesting ways. Immediately upon its discovery in 1909, it was widely publicised as a masterpiece and quickly became famous. The sheer aesthetic power of the wall painting has elicited many artistic responses as well. Perhaps the paintings show an initiation ceremony, or a passage of a different kind - to womanhood or marriage. We may never know the full meaning but the painting remains one of the glories of Roman art.
