Dimensions: H 1.35m, W 1.35m
Material: Coloured marble and limestone cubes
Date: Hellenistic Period (2nd century B.C.)
Site: The New Library of Alexandria, Egypt

Fragment of a mosaic floor that bears a witness to the high artistic standard of the mosaic craftsmanship in Alexandria, especially these made for the Ptolemaic royal court during the Hellenistic period.The central part is in the form of a circle, surrounding a rare representation of a dog beside an inverted bronze Greek vessel (askos). The details of the scene and the reflection of light on the metal (bronze) are rendered with great artistic skill.The dog’s features are crafted with realism and delicate details. This artistic style is called “opus vermiculum”.
