The pictorial decoration, with faux doors and columns, is correlated to actual architectural features, thereby creating tricks of perspective and correspondences between the real and the imaginary. The numerous details of the painted decorations, consisting of masks, baskets of fruit, torches, and birds, are of very high quality. The villa was originally adorned with numerous sculptures, most of which were Roman copies of originals of the Hellenistic sphere of the 3rd-2nd century B.C.
