ISRAEL-ARCHAEOLOGY-MOSAIC

A worker of the Israel Antiquities Authority sits next to a 1,700-year-old mosaic, which served as the living room floor in a villa during the Roman and Byzantine periods, as it is presented to the public and the press for the first time on November 16, 2015, in the Israeli central city of Lod. The scenes in the impressive mosaic depict hunting and hunted animals, fish, flowers in baskets, vases and birds. Another mosaic, which was discovered and excavated in the northern part of the complex in the early 1990s by the late Miriam Avissar, has been exhibited in recent years in some of the worlds leading museums, including the Metropolitan, the Louvre and the State Hermitage.
