Roman mosaic from the first half of the 3rd century A.D., discovered in the Maison des Dauphins. The mosaic showcases a decorative pattern known as "opposed winding" utilizing dolphin faces. In the middle of each winding, there is a depiction of an avian figure in a flight attitude. The main design of the mosaic consists of opposed windings, a decorative motif commonly found in Roman mosaic art. These windings are created by intertwining and curving lines that create a sense of movement and fluidity. The windings are adorned with dolphin faces, symbolizing marine life and the association with the sea.Image ID#: 21247 / Category: Arts / Price: 499$
