It’s next to impossible not to say “I pity the fool!” when you think of Mr. T. (So I’m not going to.) This is the fourth piece (of 6) in the “Jentaculum” series. The background is based on a stunning fresco found in an ancient dining room under Rome’s Trastevere quarter. The cereal box rests on the actual table found in Pompeii that was once owned by one of Julius Ceasar’s assassins. His name (Publius Casca Longus) was carved into one of the table legs. How cool is that? The answer? Way cool.
