Fishing in Antiquity
Fishing was, at all times, one of the easiest sources of obtaining animal protein. Therefore this activity is not forgotten by the painters of all centuries.
A pesca foi, em todas as épocas, uma das mais fáceis fontes de obtenção de proteínas de origem animal. Por essa razão não a esqueceram os pintores dos vários séculos.
