EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a mesmerizing pavement mosaic from Sousse, Tunisia. Created by Roman artists in the 2nd century AD, this artwork measures an impressive 215x170 cm and is now housed at the Musee Archeologique in Sousse. The image depicts a scene of fish escaping from a basket, beautifully capturing their graceful movements as they swim freely. The intricate details of this mosaic are truly remarkable. Each fish is meticulously crafted with vibrant colors and delicate patterns that bring them to life. The artist's skillful use of tesserae creates a sense of depth and motion, making it feel as if these aquatic creatures are actually swimming across the pavement. This artwork not only showcases the artistic prowess of ancient Roman craftsmen but also reflects North African influences on their artistry. It serves as a testament to the rich cultural exchange that occurred during this period. As we gaze upon this stunning piece, we can't help but be captivated by its beauty and symbolism. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, it reminds us of the importance of freedom and liberation - even for those who may seem trapped or confined like fish in a basket. Bridgeman Images has masterfully captured every detail in this photograph print, allowing us to appreciate this extraordinary work from afar. Whether you're an art enthusiast or simply drawn to its visual allure, this print is sure to make an exquisite addition to any collection or space
