Decorate Your House With Bás-Reliefs And Sculptures

As I promised you, this is the 3 post about the art in the houses of Antique Romans. We visited Herculaneum (Ercolano) where the houses are in a very good state of conservation and here are some photos telling about the decorations of the houses.

If you don't know what is Herculaneum /Ercolano/, you can read first this my previous post Better Herculaneum /Ercolano Or Pompei?

When I wrote about the Pictures On The Walls I did not insert this interesting photo because it is not very clear:

Искусство в римских домах (Эрколано)

Except pictures there are many other interesting things there. The owners of this house loved bás-reliefs more. Look here how good is the combination of red of the walls and white of the bás-reliefs

This last has to be Hercules, the maybe most loved hero of Romans

  1. I like the idea of decorating the house this way but I think it will be very expensive and our homes here just don't have the space.

  2. Yes, these is about more rich houses. The Romans liked to have a piece of greenery in the internal yard and they have very small rooms.
