Model of the Paestum Tomb, attributed to Domenico Padiglione
Cork and stucco
Museum number: M1088
Excavations outside the city walls of Paestum uncovered a series of particularly richly decorated and furnished tombs and this model is a synthesis of several of these sepulchres. The interior is adorned with paintings and decoration from a number of monuments taken from the cemeteries outside Paestum. As with the other tombs on display here, this model also contains a miniature burial along with a selection of grave goods. Again, these were based on actual archaeological finds.
