Artifacts recovered in the excavation of Pompeii. The sitting figure is plaster poured into a spot on the volcanic material where a person met their end during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. #myphoto #travel #history #Pompeii

Here is a zoomed in view. I have found these figures fascinating since I first saw a history channel episode of this. What did this person do for a living? Did they have a loving family? What were their last thoughts? I hope the people of this great city didn't suffer in their last moments.
