I.12.8 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 9, north wall of peristyle garden. On both sides of the doorway to the rear garden was a garden painting. Curtis described it as a large, brightly coloured painting, divided in the centre by the doorway leading into the rear courtyard.
Each half of the painting was bordered by a wide, red band. At each corner the artist painted an amphora in gold inside of a square with painted black background. See Curtis R.L: The Garum shop of Pompeii, In Cronache Pompeiane, V.1979, (p.19). See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices.

I.12.8 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 9, west side of north wall with remains of garden painting.  According to Curtis, the major panels of the painting depicted a garden scene with thick foliage. The left panel was much deteriorated, but both panels contained paintings of life-like birds standing on branches of green trees and shrubbery. According to Jashemski, she could see four song-birds in a thicket of ivy, flowering oleanders and myrtles.
The bottom part of the painting was destroyed. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas, (p.326 and fig.378)

I.12.8 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 9, east side of north wall with remains of garden painting.  According to Curtis, when excavated the panel on the right had a brilliantly coloured painted peacock, in its lower left corner. Unfortunately, this has now deteriorated and disappeared. According to Jashemski, she could also make out four songbirds among the ivy, oleanders and myrtles in the painting on the right. These were painted on a yellow-orange background. Two partly preserved strutting peacocks faced each other in the lower left and right of this panel. There was also a large bird perched at the bottom near the centre of the painting. Garlands of myrtle framed the top and sides of each panel.
There was a wide red border at the top, bottom and sides. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas, (p.326 and fig.378)

I.12.8 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 9, east wall and area where the root cavities of one of the fig trees were discovered by Jashemski. According to Curtis, he thought the trees would have enhanced the effect of the garden painting on the north wall, provided shade for the workmen, and in the case of this tree provided some privacy for those using the latrine.
