Lares

I’ve used the last of my nice pine blocks to do an approximate copy of a picture from Pompeii, showing the Lares, one kind of household gods the Romans had (they seem to have had slightly different ideas of exactly what the lares were at different periods – whether or not they were ancestors, for example. They are the the chaps to right and left – the one in the middle is the genius of the household (coughs modestly). Don’t ask me about the snake – no idea.
