A detail of the garden fresco from the winter triclinium (dining room) from the Villa of Livia, wife of Augustus, Rome. The life-size representations of trees, flowers, fruit and birds decorate all four walls of the room to create a continuous and 360° view of a garden which adds perspective by increasing clarity in the foreground subjects. (Palazzo Massimo, Rome).
