This is marble fragment from the early 4th century and found in Rome. It portrays the good shepherd specifically Jesus carrying a lamb over his shoulders. You will see this topic in many different forms of art- stone, paintings, drawings, and on clothing. There is so much detail in this marble fragment. There is Jesus- his face, clothing, hands, and body shape. Then the lamb with its curly hair and hooves. There is also a huge design next to Jesus and the lamb. I think it looks like waves in the ocean. Maybe isis the Parting of the Red Sea? Artists at this time were known for portraying biblical stories. I think that if we could see the whole wall, then it would be very detailed and beautifully sculpted, based off this marble fragment.
