Today from the J Paul Getty Museum, a stunning if brutal boxing mosaic. Dating to around AD175, it was found in Villelaure, in south east France.
Nice. I love how they capture the scene with the red swollen bodies and both men are beat up, its just that one is defeated (for now). At least it shows we are civilized, the men did not kill each other ;-)
One of the best mosaics I have seen. I like how they included the wounded bull submitting to his opponent.
