Christian Wall Paintings
Lullingstone, Kent

The Roman villa excavated at Lullingstone in Kent is still uncovered and open to the public. However, some of its priceless treasures are housed in the British Museum. Amongst them are fragments of painted wall plaster used in a part of the house which was converted into a Christian Chapel. These have been reconstructed to show of their former glory: A large chi-rho, the alphabetical symbol of Christ, flanked by two tiny doves and an astonishing arcade of praying Romans with arms outstretched.
