Lod Mosaic

The incredible Lod mosaic (Roman, c. 300 CE) is on display for a limited time at the Met (through April 3, 2011).  Here is a screen shot close-up of some of the exotic animals depicted in the mosaic, including a wonderful elephant complete with the distinct "criss-cross" pattern to represent the elephant's unique skin texture.
