We see a ton of Roman influence in the art that we looked at this week, as most pieces have at least one similar aspect to them. One example that stood out was the sculpture of the shepherd boy, as it shows the same ideal, youthful body that we had seen in Roman sculptures. Not only do they use the same body style, but they also use similar curly hair on the piece. There was also signs of their influence in the synagogues (more specifically, the Synagogue at Dura-Europos) where they had visual narratives on the walls around the room as we saw in a couple of examples during our week studying Roman art, as well as the same columns that we saw in a lot of Roman structures.
