VI.14.43 Pompeii. December 2007. Room 14, garden area with fountain.
According to Jashemski, the large mosaic fountain had a garden painting on its left (north) side which was visible from the north portico.
Bushes, birds and flowers are still faintly visible. A large bird flying through the blue sky is well-preserved in the centre of the painting. In the lower portion of the wall, where a lattice fence might be expected, the plaster is missing. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.151)

According to Jashemski, when the fountain was excavated there was a pedestal in the niche, in which stood a statue of Mars.

This is now in Naples Archaeological Museum, inventory number 126249, Ruesch: 1924.

Below on the pedestal was a mask of a woman, which was bordered with mosaic and coloured marble, from which the water jetted.
