Copy of a fresco found on a barrel-vaulted tomb on Nigdis street, outside the western walls, in the Tyrolois quarter. It depicts two colorful birds that frame a basket with fruits. The background is decorated with flowers. The scene resembles paradise scenery, symbolizing the life after death. A red strip frames the entire composition.
