EDITORS COMMENTS
This chromolithograph showcases a magnificent mosaic of a dog from the porter's threshold of the House of Vesonius Primus, a fuller, in Pompeii. The House of Vesonius Primus, located in the ancient Roman town, was once the residence of a fuller, an essential figure in the textile industry who prepared and finished woolen fabrics. The mosaic, expertly rendered by Geremia Discanno and beautifully reproduced by Victor Steeger, depicts a well-groomed dog standing on a leash, guarding the threshold of the house. The intricate design of the mosaic, with its lifelike representation of the dog's coat and expressive eyes, speaks to the advanced artistic skills of the Roman civilization. The dog, a common motif in Roman mosaics, symbolizes loyalty and protection. The image transports us back in time to the bustling streets of Pompeii, where the sounds of daily life, the aroma of cooking, and the vibrant colors of mosaics like this one would have filled the air. This mosaic is a testament to the rich cultural heritage of ancient Rome and the classical world.
