Roman humor. Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836-1912) painted how the Roman Emperor Heliogabalus surprised his dinner guests with an avalanche of thousands of rose petals coming out of a false ceiling. To create this painting, over a period of four months, Alma-Tadema imported rose petals weekly from France. Months after he completed the painting he was still finding dried rose petals in his studio. #Art #Artwork #ArtHistory #Painting #Humor #Funny #Roman #RomanEmperor #Heliogabalus #Surprise #AlmaTadema #Roses #RosePetals #Avalanche #Joke
