Description: Fragment of a Roman mural painting with a strong expression. In front of a possibly scenic, green-white background a young man looking to the left with his eyes wide open. He has his finely curved mouth open in amazement or in awe, the front teeth are visibly. He has brown hair. The luster in the eyes, lips and forehead reveal that he is standing in the brightness, possibly in a fantasy garden, which would attribute this fresco to the Pompeian style 4. Mounted on a plexiglass.
