Abstract
Wall painting extended the impressive effect of the vaulted architecture of the Icarus Str. tomb, placing a decorative skin of vibrant garlands, flowers, and birds over the shapely arched niches. Varied images painted on the two arcosolia on the right of the tomb entrance, and on the elegant central arcosolium opposite, show the long span of the tomb's use.
