The tessellated entrance in context. Appearance and significance of Pompeian threshold mosaics

Project: Research

Layman's description

Wrestlers, guard dogs, swastikas, and hurt wild boars are few of all the symbols that adorn the mosaic floors of the entrances to private houses of Roman Pompeii. The aim of the thesis is to examine all of the Pompeian entrance mosaics, as to investigate the meanings of the mosaics, as well as the entrance, to the house owner and how he wanted to manifest himself and his status in the society.
