The architectural elements of the interior space depicted in this painting is an excellent example of one-point perspective.

I too agree that these are really attractive paintings. The topic of Death in young Roman general Germanicus reminds of popular tv show Death Note..

I think it is really weird. It is really weird what happened when you red it.

This piece of art really has an interesting history. I can really see how people are mourning germanicus. It also is very detailed, which makes it very realistic. It seems like the solders are planning how to murder his adoptive father, sense this is who killed him.

Beautiful yet morbid painting. It really speaks to you as being sorrowful.. Death is so popular in ancient art.
