The series is an early imagining for the creation of fictional relics that began in 1977. The creation of shards and fragments of lost friezes and frescoes initially took the archeological excavations at Pompeii as point of departure, especially the wall drawings in the Villa dei Misteri with its still-mysterious depictions of ritualistic erotic acts.
