Ambulacro della Grande Caccia

Highly recommended
This immense gallery is the most evocative in the Villa Romana del Casale. On the ground, a dramatic hunting scene depicts a multitude of exotic and wild animals being captured and put into cages, to be shipped to Rome for use in circus shows. The composition is astonishing in its diversity, and the struggle between man and beast is illustrated with outstanding realism. You will admire the sense of action and movement, as well as the wealth of detail.
