Regio II

House of Venus in the Shell


This house essentially is built around the garden. On the bottom wall there is a painting portraying the birth of Venus from a shell in the company of little cupids. 


Her hairstyle follows the fashion popular during Nero's reign. A statue of Mars and marble basins with  doves are also painted. The building was still  under restoration because of the damages caused by the earthquake as can be seen by the fact that a room had been whitewashed but not yet painted.
