Look Familiar?

The Unswept Floor, Roman Mosaic, 2nd century CE

A Roman mosaic based on an earlier painting. It depicts the remnants of a dinner party scattered all over the floor of a dining room. Do you see the mouse?

That's incredibly clever!. I had no idea Romans made mosaics with such charming subjects.

The mouse I see, but what is that thing third from the left at the top?!

I thought that was a chicken (or poultry) bone.
