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.
