Fresco of Echo and Narcissus, with Narcissus falling in love with his own reflection, on the North wall of a small room off the atrium of the Casa dell Efebo, or House of the Ephebus, Pompeii, Italy. The fresco is in the Fourth Style of Roman wall painting, 60-79 AD, a complex narrative style. This is a large, sumptuously decorated house probably owned by a rich family, and named after the statue of the Ephebus found here. Pompeii is a Roman town which was destroyed and buried under 4-6 m of volcanic ash in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Buildings and artefacts were preserved in the ash and have been excavated and restored. Pompeii is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Picture by Manuel Cohen
