The Mask of Solunto 

This image is of a 1st century B.C. wall painting of theatrical mask with garland and fruit from the House of the Masks in Solunto, an ancient city on top of Mount Catalfano in Santa Flavia. The precious fresco is now housed at the Regional Archaeological Museum Antonio Salinas in Palermo. 

Fun fact: my grandfather grew up in the shadow of Mount Catalfano in the fishing village of Porticello, a division of Santa Flavia.
