Description
In the Classical World, there was a general acceptance of the place of sexuality in everyday life. Lamps such as this, with frank and open depictions of eroticism, would have lit bedchambers throughout the Roman Empire. It reminds us that, while great empires rise and fall, the fundamentals of life have changed but little with the centuries. - (L.0333)
