Museo Nazionale Romano

I believe most of the art I photographed at the Museo Nazionale Romano comes from the first century A.D. There are a few national museums here and this one, at Palazzo Massimo alle Terme, is said to be the best because of its collection of ancient art.

Aphrodite—looking more womanly than goddess-like here. Yay!

From a ship. Pretty ornate, no?

I loved the mosaics. Check out the different colors used to add depth to the birds and fish and food. The pieces are so tiny.

This intricate design made me dizzy.
