Pompeii Memorial

This piece visually tells the story of Pompeii.

Barely visible in the background on the far right is a sliver of Mt. Vesuvius, which erupted in A.D. 79 covering the city and its people with 30 feet of volcanic ash. The city, preserved by the ash, was rediscovered in the 17th century and excavated in the mid 18th century. This piece also includes an image of a plaster cast of an individual who died in the tragedy and an excavated street in Pompeii.

This piece was in my Impressions of Italy show and in Columbus, OH at the Riffe Gallery's Let's Get Digital exhibit.

Size: (h x w) 14" x 11" framed
