Alexander The Great is an Italian jacquard wall tapestry. The artwork is an extract from the Alexander Mosaic, dating from circa 100 BC. It is a Roman floor mosaic originally from the House of the Faun in Pompeii, depicting a battle between the armies of Alexander the Great and Darius III of Persia and measures 2.72 x 5.13m (8 ft 11in x 16 ft 9in). The original is preserved in the Naples National Archaeological Museum. The mosaic is believed to be a copy of an early 3rd century BC Hellenistic painting, possibly by Philoxenos of Eretria.
