Photograph - Photograph
Red mullets and ducks, Roman mosaic. Mosaics consist of small pieces of coloured glass or stone, used to form an image or pattern on a floor or wall. This mosaic shows four red mullet fish above three ducks, separated by a sprig of myrtle and three berries. This is a typical combination of food served in Roman times. This mosaic is from the 'House of the Grand Duke of Tuscany'.
