The third and final piece of the “Recent finds
from Ostia” series. The 3D maze pattern depicted is found in ancient Greek and Roman mosaics. However mice have gotten into this one – unbeknownst to a patrolling feline. Now that

one of the animals depicted on the Ishtar Gate
of Babylon in Istanbul’s Archaeology Museum.
‘Oblivious Cat’ is a relatively inexpensive, low maintenance way to own a pet.
