Tacky Antiquity...

Postby Monzambano » 02 May 2013 20:07

New research on what ancient statuary really looked like at the time: http://io9.com/5616498/ultraviolet-light-reveals-how-ancient-greek-statues-really-looked

We always knew this was so (apologies for the title, just trying to attract viewers), but seeing it reproduced with a measure of authenticity is mind-blowing. Forget Winkelmann's edle Einfalt und stille Größe, this is 100% oriental burgeoning life.
