A detail from the mosaic in Pompeii's House of the Faun shows Alexander the Great.
Which is part of this which can be seen on the left side:
Measuring 19 feet by 10 feet (5.8 by 3 meters), the piece was made around 100 B.C. out of roughly 4 million tesserae (small mosaic tiles).
Not too shoddy for a bunch of amateur artists, huh?
