Room with Erotic Mosaic

The front room has a geometric mosaic dominated by 3×3 twelve pointed stars each formed by three intertwined squares made of guilloches in red, green and yellow. Within each star is a laurel garland, golden leaves on red background or green leaves on black, with an image of fruit, such as grapes, figs, melons and pomegranates inside. Twelve parallelograms around each star fill most of the remaining space, leaving four hexagons along the edge.
