Roman Funerary Art 567345 Like the art of any society, Roman funerary art symbolizes the way the person who created or commissioned the art viewed society and his/her place in that society. It also says a lot about the society itself. The art specifically commissioned by Romans to memorialize a person who had died tells a lot about how the person lived, like, among other things, whether or not they had wealth and status, whether they were married, their age and perhaps even what they looked like when they died.
