Garden fresco  This large-scale fresco now broken into three sections, once covered the entire back wall of the summer triclinium, or dining room, of the House of the Gold Bracelets in Pompeii. The center section framed a niche, possibly for a working fountain. In homes with limited space for a garden or green space, these wall paintings created the illusion of a large garden.
