The Ancient Marble Statue is a White Lie

Re–blog from SvD.

Article written in Swedish and published by the Swedish morning newspaper Svenska Dagbladet — The Swedish Daily Paper. Sadly it isn’t possible to translate it via Google Translate.

The main proposition, and according to the author — a Professor of Ancient Culture and Society — known by scientists for centuries, is that ancient marble statues were painted in bright colors! I was totally unaware of this.

Also mentioned in the article is the use of digital technology to simulate the colors originally used by projecting them unto the statues. Very creative and inspiring!
