Mosaic octopus covered in 30 to 40 feet of volcanic ash from the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD. Pompeii is like a time capsule taking you back to the exact day in which this natural disaster took place. Coins were still present on top of carts that carried fresh fruit for sale in the streets on that fateful day. I find this amazing.
