Seen on the left, the east wall of the tablinum had a black zoccolo (lower portion) with painted plants with edges formed from a single line and separated by narrow geometrical compartments. The middle zone of the wall had a black central panel with a painting (now removed); the side panels were red with vignettes of painted panthers, and there was a cornice of moulded stucco; the upper zone of the wall was ruined and rough.

I.8.5 Pompeii. Ivory statuette of Lakshmi.  Found in a wooden chest on the west side of the Viridarium 8.  Now in Naples Archaeological Museum. Inventory number 149425. According to Jashemski, Della Corte stated that the small Indian statuette was found October 24th 1938 in the nearby I.8.19. He thought it had been thrown down, when the south-west corner of the peristyle of this house had collapsed. Maiuri said that the statuette had been stored in a wooden chest in one of the rustic rooms off the portico, together with various objects of domestic use.
