The article reminds us, “Ancient Greek statues weren’t merely the white marble we see today. They were painted. This amazing video from Amarildo Topalis shows you what the ancient world really looked like.”
There’s an imaginative video (also on YouTube, I believe) which might be useful to those who teach in this area. It is 7.30 mins and consists of a series of images of sculptures, progressively coloured in to give an idea of how they might once have looked. No commentary, but a rather irritating loop of music in the background.
Worth a look, as I say; the ‘reconstructions’ seem very well done.
