The Painted Garden of the Villa di Livia, Prima Porta, Rome
This lush painted garden covered the walls of a semi-subterranean chamber, probably a cool triclinium (dining room) for summer banquets, in the suburban Villa of Livia Drusilla, the wife of the Emperor Augustus.
This Second style fresco, the most ancient example of continuous garden painting (30 - 20 BCE), presents a variety of plants and birds rendered in a naturalistic way.
Just met my literary idol, Chuck Palahniuk. Just shook his hand. Just chatted him up. Just had him sign my favorite book in the world, Invisible Monsters. Just watched him read some of the weirdest William S. Burroughs shit ever written. nbd nbd nbdddddd
