Lazio, the Latin heartland
The Tomb of the Jugglers, from around 510 BCE, takes its name from the picture of the games on the main wall. On the pediment at the top are two big cats, each raising one of its front paws. The central fresco shows a woman with a large jug on her head. A juggler, standing behind two vases, tosses some disks into the vase brought by the woman. Behind her is the figure of an flute player. A man sits to the right, watching the performance and dancers are on the right wall.
