How Ancient Greek Statues Really Looked

painted greek statue

Original Greek statues were brightly painted, but after thousands of years, those paints have worn away…Although it seems impossible to think that anything could be left to discover after thousands of years of wind, sun, sand, and art students, finding the long lost patterns on a piece of ancient Greek sculpture can be as easy as shining a lamp on it. A technique called ‘raking light’ has been used to analyze art for a long time.
