VILLA OF THE MYSTERIES at Pompeii—View into the triclinium from the vestibule.
VOM existing
Shown above is the current state of the Triclinium. The floor is original and the state of the original murals is quite good except for the areas seen at the end and right side of the room.

The purpose of this reconstruction is to investigate the relationship of the Triclinium, the famous dining room at the villa of the Mysteries in Pompeii, Italy to its setting within its gardens and its extensive views.

The room itself is still relatively intact but is now shut off from exterior light in order to preserve the wonderful murals inside.

The series of reconstructed views try to give some notion of its opening into the landscape and its natural and evening lighting.
