Wanna see picture of 2,100-year-old mosaic found at Pompeii

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?
