Pompeii Exhibit

For this workshop, we decided to zoom in on various moments of our lives. Bella P. zooms in on a memory of her going to the natural history museum with my family and coming across the Pompeii exhibit. It’s quite horrific!


Pompeii Exhibit

by Bella P.

Dead stoned bodies frozen by  volcanic acid ash

Terrible earthquake occurred

while the volcano erupted

Creepy fog came out from the sides

while playing the tragic scene

I saw a crouched man

trying to cover his self but was still

covered in acid ash

guardian dog covered in acid too

everything and everyone vanished

from existence

from the little town
