Ohhh I see it now - it’s a dog! She’s patting its head and the tail is up against the frame of the relief. I had somehow seen it the other way round. Phew! Still cute though!

Goodness! How very unusual a scene. It’s glorious though I’m hoping from the position it’s a toy not a person! Thanks.

A lovely 1800 year old mosaic from the floor of a Roman Villa in Great Witcombe. There is always such wonderful detail in these mosaics!
