This drawing of a Roman mosaic pavement from the Horkstow villa was made by William Fowler of Winterton, a prolific amateur recorder of mosaics in the late 18th and early 19th Centuries.
The Horkstow villa pavement is one of the most famous in Britain because of its depiction of a chariot race, but the large mosaic features many other designs as well.
The central motif is lost, but is surrounded by panels of mythological scenes, held up by four giants with serpents for legs.
Above this scene are animals crowded around Orpheus (who just survives at the top of the mosaic), being soothed by his music.
The mosaic can now be seen in the Hull and East Riding Museum.
