Mosaic of the pelt of a tiger at the Bardo Museum, Tunis, Tunisia

I’ve been working on some photos from the Bardo in Tunis today.  Among the many mosaics there is this one.  I think there is something quite special about it.  Imagine the origianl home that had this on it’s floor.  All the beauty of a tiger skin rug without the tripping hazzard!  There is something very modern about this concept but yet the mosaic comes from the time of the Roman Empire.
