Mosaics: Bulla Regia

What is so special about the mosaics at Bulla Regia is that instead of being on a wall in a museum, they are still on the floor, in situ. This large bear was in the theatre. As it was raining there was no need to sprinkle water on to bring the colours to life!

Threequarters of the site is underground and these are where the most spectacular mosaics are found: like this portrait in the House of fishing

And Venus and Cupid riding dolphins in the House of Amphitrite. Stunning!
