Gallo-Roman medallion

A Gallo-Roman medallion

When I first visited the Archeological museum of the Val d’Oise in 2021 i was stunned by monumental sculptures and frescoes  from the Gallo Roman sanctuary of Vaux de la Celle.

Beside the monumental sculptures one of the frescoes really got my attention…

Original fresco at the Museum of Val d'oise

The geometric pattern of this fresco actually is quite similar to patterns often met in Roman mosaics.

An other good indication that antic painters and mosaicists worked closely together and shared common patterns. ..
