This is from "Thalassa and the nude fisherman". From Yakto, Harbiye, 5th century AD, inv. 1017. Thalassa stands for "sea", young boys fishing or riding dolphins make up the rest of the mosaic.

I took it from far away up in the room where it was displayed, hence the foreshortening and shallow depth of field.

other sizes: small medium large original
