A roman peacock

Here is a wonderful example on how the 2nd style might look. The scene depicts architectural elements, but there's no real plan and the perspective change from one part of the painting to another. We also have the small decorative elements of a peacock and a theatrical mask. This painting is to be found in the villa Oplontis and is dated to the early 1st century AD.
