   Click each of the nine pictures above and look closely at the detail.  The far scenes are painted on the surrounding inner  wall, while three dimensional objects are in the foreground.  

   Notice the "burning" embers in the second photo from the left, second row. Can you tell where the three dimensional objects stop and the painted figures begin in these photos?
