Cave Canem is a warning in Latin (which consists in cavere "bullied", "be careful" and canis "dog") and means "Beware of the Dog". It became known and is often cited because of the discovery of a well-preserved mosaic of floor in the ruins of Pompeii.

A pictorial work made with small pieces of stone, ceramic, glass or other similar materials of various shapes and colors, called tesserae, attached with plaster, or other binder to form a geometrical or figurative decorative compositions.

Mosaic made entirely by hand, following the techniques of thousands of years ago.

The used technique is the "opus teselarium", mosaic of tesserae of cubic stones.

In its manufacture were use tesserae of 8mm of natural stone and marble of different colors. It is mounted on a mortar with metal frame ready to hang up on the wall or to be use as a floor covering.
