Dancer with Conical Hat Holding Noisemaker, Columbarium Villa Pamphili

One finds such dancers (This one resembles a pop-eyed Pinocchio) in ancient Roman funerary art. Although they may well have apotropaic significance—i.e., to ward off evil—they fit in with the theatrical motifs found on walls in columbaria.
